Local police, service groups deserve recognition

We're inundated with awards for actors and rock stars, but it's nice to see people recognized for achievements that actually benefit society. On Wednesday evening, several local police and community organizations were honored for promoting safety in their communities.

The High-tech Corridor Region Safe Community Program handed out its top awards to former Clarksburg Mayor David Kates and Clarksburg Police Chief John Walker.

Kates received the 2001 Safe Community Individual Advocacy Award for his promotion of seat belt usage. Walker was given the 2001 Safe Community Advocacy and Support Award for his efforts to secure grants and his overall support of the seat belt safety program.

Others, including high school students and police agencies, were noted for their work in reducing incidents of drunken driving.

We salute the winners of this year's awards, and the work they do to protect local motorists. The police officers are the ones on the front lines, trying to get drunk drivers off the roads, and the student organizations like S.A.D.D. that educate young people about the dangers of substance abuse.

Together, these groups are making a difference. It's nice to see their efforts recognized.
