[ARCHIVED] Bristol Police Department honors two individuals with Citizenship Award

At a meeting of law enforcement officials, Chief of Police Blaine Wade presented the Bristol, Tennessee Police Department’s Citizenship Award to two individuals in recognition of their efforts to help make their communities a safer place. Each of the women were honored for remarkably similar incidents involving children in danger.

In December of 2015, Naomi Carrier and Vanessa King each contacted authorities on separate occasions regarding children under five years old, whom they observed walking outside unaccompanied by a parent or guardian, and remained with the children until officers arrived to investigate. The two were lauded by Chief Wade for their “quick, decisive actions” and their overall “sense of community”.

The Police Department’s Citizenship Award is a way of recognizing individuals or groups whose efforts assist the department in promoting community safety and enhancing the overall quality of life for Bristol residents through community involvement and partnerships with citizens.
In addition to the Citizenship Awards presented, Bristol, Tennessee Detective Ginger Crowe was also promoted to the rank of Sergeant by Chief Wade at the meeting.

For more information regarding the Citizenship Award, contact Major Tim Eads, Support Services Commander, at 423-989-5273 or email
