The East Tennessee Region of the Governors Highway Safety Office recognized Lincoln Memorial University Police Officer Jaimee Snow as one of the Officers of the Year for 2013.
Dec. 10 was the office’s awards ceremony at the Moose Lodge in Greeneville, Tenn. Snow was one of two university officers to be named among 14 total award recipients announced at the annual ceremony.
East Tennessee Law Enforcement Liaison Steve Dillard presented the awards during the luncheon. Snow was nominated for the award by LMU’s Police Chief Matt Sandefur.
“Officer Snow is a very hard worker who has a pride and dedication for the job,” Sandefur said in award nomination forms. “His level of professionalism sets a mark here at LMU for all other officers to aspire to.”
Snow’s active community policing and dedication to the LMU community and involvement with the LMU J. Frank White Academy college preparatory program landed him the awards.
He is also the department leader for issuing citations including speeding enforcement.
“A safe environment is one of the hallmarks of LMU and that is a testament to the hardworking men and women who police our community,” said LMU President B. James Dawson.
“Though the police force itself is young, we have many seasoned veterans on our team. Certainly, Officer Snow is a prime example of that. This is a tremendous honor and one that is well deserved,” said Dawson.
