On Thursday, March 31st four deputies with the Canadian County Sheriff’s Office received “Top Cop” Awards at the annual Buckle Down Awards ceremony conducted at the Owasso campus of the Tulsa Technology Center. 

This year marked the 29th year of the event where Law Enforcement Officers from around the state are recognized for the contributions and exemplary efforts to save lives through Traffic Safety enforcement in a number of different areas.

From the Canadian County Sheriff’s Office, Captain Jason Glass received the “Top Cop” award for his proactive efforts in the area of General Traffic Enforcement, while Deputy Sheriff Matthew Capshaw received a “Top Cop” award for the enforcement of Occupant Protection/Safety Belt violations.  Deputy Sheriffs Jeffrey Bouillon and Page Pierce-Butler each received their “Top Cop” awards for their hard work and dedication in the area of Impaired Driving enforcement.

“Every day in Oklahoma and across the county people are injured and killed in traffic collisions.  Accordingly, I feel it’s very important for the Sheriff’s Office to be involved in traffic safety enforcement, and I’m extremely proud of the efforts our deputies make to prevent crashes and save lives,” said Chris West, Canadian County Sheriff.
