One of the Miami Police Department's Finest used Thursday's Officer of the Month award ceremony to propose to his girlfriend.

Officer Henry Ortega was saying his thanks yous after receiving the award when he called his girlfriend up to the stage, got on one knee and popped the question.

She of course said yes.

Ortega said the couple has been together for five years and they have two daughters together.

Police said Ortega, who is assigned to the Overtown area, was nominated for the award after making multiple narcotics arrests, and for stepping in to stop a knife-wielding suspect back on June 9.
