Virginia Beach Police Awarded State Honors

Thursday, August 16, 2012

​The National Law Enforcement Challenge (NLEC) is a nationwide traffic safety awards program that recognizes excellent law enforcement traffic safety programs.  The program provides law enforcement agencies with an opportunity to make a difference in the communities they serve and allows agencies to learn from one another and establish future goals in traffic safety enforcement and education.


The Virginia Beach Police Department’s Special Operations Unit Traffic Safety Division received State Honors on August 14 for Best Traffic Safety Program for a department of our size.  (All departments compete in categories relevant to their size.)  The Virginia Association of Chiefs of Police announced the award and also recognized Virginia Beach with the Best Impaired Driving Program. This is the seventh year in a row that our agency has taken the First Place award in the state.
