Citizenship Award Carrier and King_126681

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.
