THP honored by national chiefs of police group


NASHVILLE (AP) - The Tennessee Highway Patrol is being recognized by the International Association of Chiefs of Police.

The agency earned second place in the association's 2012 law enforcement challenge and won the special category for impaired driving.

THP Colonel Tracy Trott is scheduled to accept the awards at the IACP annual conference in Philadelphia, Pa., next week.

The THP took top honors in the impaired driving category based on its year-round efforts to detect and apprehend drunk drivers and to address the traffic safety issue through policies, officer training and public information and education.

The IACP is the world's oldest and largest nonprofit organization of police executives with more than 20,000 members in some 200 countries.
