The International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and PARADE magazine selected Massachusetts State Police Trooper Marion Fletcher for an Honorable Mention Award in the 2005 Parade/IACP Police Officer of the Year program. Trooper Fletcher was one of ten officers from across the nation who received honorable mention awards in recognition of their exceptional police work. The IACP indicates that this award "symbolizes the highest level of achievement among police officers in the United States, and serves as a litmus test for law enforcement throughout the PARADE reading audience, which numbers in the millions." The September 18, 2005 issue of PARADE magazine highlights the incident for which Trooper Fletcher was recognized: "After a high-speed pursuit of four armed suspects, Trooper Fletcher single-handedly executed a 'felony-stop,' halting the getaway car and detaining four until backup arrived. Two small children were rescued from the vehicle."

Trooper Fletcher has also received state recognition for her actions during this felony-stop. At the State House in May, Trooper Fletcher was awarded the Massachusetts State Police Medal of Honor. The Medal of Honor, the highest award bestowed by the State Police, recognizes sworn Department personnel who have performed acts of extraordinary heroism above and beyond the call of duty.
Trooper Fletcher was again honored at the State House on October 6, 2005. During the 22 nd Annual Hanna Awards, Lieutenant Governor Kerry and Marilyn Hanna recognized Trooper Fletcher by presenting her with a George L. Hanna Memorial Award for Bravery.
