Post Date:08/27/2019 4:00 PM

Chief Faulkner got a surprise visit from the Office of the Secretary of Defense this morning at Franklin Police Headquarters. She was honored with the Patriotic Employer Award for her contributions to National Security and protecting liberty and freedom by supporting employee participation in America’s National Guard and Reserve Force. Chief Faulkner was nominated for the award by Franklin Police Officer Steve Chittanavong who recently served in an overseas deployment.

Chief Faulkner said, “Being nominated by one of my officers makes me especially proud to be recognized with this award. I am extremely proud of our officers who not only serve our city, but also our country. They all serve with pride and professionalism.” This is the second time in her five years as Franklin’s Police Chief that Faulkner has been honored with this award.
