Albemarle County Officer Receive Traffic Safety Awards
ACPD gives out traffic safety awards
The Albemarle County Police Department honored officers with a ceremony Friday and gave them an award for traffic safety.
Charlottesville and the surrounding areas may be considered "small town", but it has some big city traffic issues and officers are working to curb those troubles.
One by one, 11 officers stepped up to receive awards. Col. Steve Sellers spoke about each officer's efforts to encourage and enforce driving safety, including speed enforcement, seat belt use and DUI enforcement.
Colleagues and family members were on hand to celebrate the awards with the officers.
The ceremony lasted about 40 minutes. After the ceremony, the officers went back to their posts - keeping roads safe.
