THSO awards web

Two Bristol Tennessee Police Department officers have received top awards from the Tennessee Highway Safety Office for their work to improve roadway safety and reduce Tennessee traffic fatalities.

Officer Dan Crowe was named Officer of the Year Award for East Tennessee during the regional award ceremony on Dec. 13. A five-year veteran of the BTPD, Officer Crowe was nominated by the department’s leadership team for his outstanding work ethic and thorough investigative techniques that have removed numerous impaired drivers from the community’s roadways. 

The Seatbelt Enforcement Award for East Tennessee was presented to Officer Kevin Frederick. Officer Frederick joined the BTPD in April 2013 and was recognized for his continued efforts to enforce seatbelt laws, which is a leading initiative of the THSO.

The THSO is a division of the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security. The agency works in partnership with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to implement statewide programs that address occupant protection, impaired driving, speed enforcement, pedestrian and bicycle safety, and crash data collection and analysis. 

All THSO programs are federally funded and committed to reducing traffic fatalities as part of Toward Zero Deaths, a national goal to eliminate serious injury and deaths on our nation’s roadways. The THSO supports this goal by changing driver behavior through increased education, enforcement, and community partnerships.
