Kentucky Vehicle Officer Recieves Award of Excellence
Frankfort, KY - Kentucky Vehicle Enforcement (KVE) officer, Travis Rogers has been awarded with three state-wide awards from the Governor's Highway Safety Program for his efforts to reduce drinking and driving on Kentucky roadways. Travis is a resident of Pulaski County and has been with Kentucky Vehicle Enforcement for 6 years.
Rogers won the 2005 summer challenge "100 days of heat" for speeding, impaired driving, seat belt and child restraint citations and he was a Governor's Impaired Driving Enforcement Division Winner.
In addition, Mother's Against Drunk Driving (MADD), also awarded Rogers with the state-wide DUI award for setting a state record with 375 DUI arrests in one year. Breaking the record set by Kentucky Vehicle Enforcement officer Landry Collett last year.
"Through winning these multiple awards, officer Rogers has brought great honor and distinction upon this agency," said KVE Commissioner, Greg Howard. "It is because of officers like Travis Rogers that we have one of the premier departments of this nature in the country."
