The Bolivar Police Department earned first place in the 11-25 Officers Category for the third year in a row. Assistant Chief Eddie Henson coordinates and oversees the program for the Bolivar Police Department.

The THSO is a division of the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security advocating for traffic safety. The THSO works in tandem with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to implement statewide programs addressing occupant protection, impaired driving, speed enforcement, pedestrian and bicycle safety, and crash data collection and analysis. Programs administered by the THSO are 100 percent federally funded. The THSO’s mission is to effectively develop, implement, and evaluate these programs.
