GLENDALE, OH (FOX19) -

The Glendale police officer forced to shoot a knife-wielding man on Interstate 75 last month was honored Monday night.

Glendale leaders honored Hilling and fellow officers for exercising admirable restraint. 

Hilling was forced to shoot Pablo Javier Aleman after the suspect allegedly pulled a knife on the officer March 29,  according to police.

Bodycam video shows the suspect threatening and charging toward Hilling.

Hilling shot Aleman once, but the suspect was not apprehended until another officer interfered deploying a Taser stun gun.

The incident unfolding during rush hour in the lanes of I-75.

Hilling was awarded the Medal of Honor.

"Anytime someone gets hurt or you hurt someone and it was lawfully done it was protecting his own life it's something that would stay in your mind," said Glendale Police Chief Dave Warman. 

Glendale Police Chief Dave Warman says other law enforcement agencies want to use Hilling's body camera footage to show how he handled the situation as a part of their training.

"If it's going to change something. Let's start with the young kids coming out of the academy," said Warman. "Maybe that might change something or even change the way people question….look at police officers."
