Crime Prevention And Officer Appreciation Luncheon

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

Three of Billings' finest are named Officers Of The Year at the 56th annual National Crime Prevention And Officer Appreciation Luncheon.

The Downtown Exchange Club recognized Undersheriff Kevin Evans of the Yellowstone County Sheriff's Department, Detective Brad Tucker of the Billings Police Department, and Trooper Bill Bullock of the Montana Highway Patrol for their outstanding service in the community. Detective Tucker says he wasn't expecting to receive the award.

"I feel very honored and grateful that I was selected and that my peers thought that much of me and that much of the work I've done throughout the year, especially given the amount of crime and major incidents that we had through the police department as a whole," said Tucker.

    Last winter, Wyoming’s Department of Transportation tried a new lower night-time speed limit on the Yellowstone Highway near Cody. Now the number of wildlife accidents are down on that road.
