The Law Enforcement Traffic Safety Advisory Council (LETSAC) has selected Officer William Barger, of the Vandalia Police Department, as one of four recipients of the 2018 LETSAC “Officer of the Year” award to be presented at their conference July 9-13 at the Lodge of Four Seasons Lake Ozark, Mo.
Last November, Officer Barger officially received the 2017 Mothers Against Drunk Driving (M.A.D.D.) Award (No More Victims) at a M.A.D.D. “Heroes for Heroes” event.
His award was for his dedication and work to enforce safety on Missouri’s roadways. Officer Barger has also helped to deter drunk driving in the Vandalia area.
