Clarksville, TN – The Governor’s Highway Safety Office, along with Mothers Against Drunk Driving, recognized nearly two hundred officers and law enforcement agencies for their traffic safety enforcement efforts the week of December 8th, 2014.
Regional meetings took place in Jackson, Murfreesboro, Pikeville, Knoxville, and Greeneville.Officers across the state were recognized for their efforts in speed enforcement, seat belt enforcement, impaired driving enforcement, and child passenger safety.
In certain regions, overall departments were recognized for their entire unit’s efforts in a particular category, and on December 12th, 2014 the Clarksville Police Department was recognized at the Middle Tennessee Regional meeting held in Murfreesboro.
The CPD took home the Speed Enforcement Award.
“We hold regional meetings as a way to thank our officers, deputies, and troopers for their extra efforts keeping our roadways safe,” Tony Burnett, Middle Tennessee Law Enforcement Liaison said. “The meetings also coincide with the kickoff of our Booze It and Lose It campaign. While we spend time reflecting on the accomplishments over the year, it also keeps agencies mindful of the importance of continued efforts over the holidays.”
“Our partnerships with law enforcement agencies are extremely valuable,” Kendell Poole, Director of the Governor’s Highway Safety Office said. “It is our honor to recognize the men and women who go above and beyond to reduce traffic crashes, injuries, and fatalities. We know that their efforts are making an impact across the state of Tennessee.”
