2022 Freedom Award


Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award
Today, Gov. Beshear and Col. Philip K. Miller, USA Retired, state chairman of the Kentucky Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), presented the Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award to the Flemingsburg Police Department. The Freedom Award is the highest recognition given by the U.S. Government to employers for their outstanding support of staff serving in the National Guard and Reserve.
“I’d like to point out that, in addition to staying in constant contact with reservists and their families while they are away for military service, Flemingsburg Police Officers – to include the chief – actually go the extra mile by pulling their shifts for them to ensure there are no shortfalls in protecting the public they serve,” Miller said.
“First and foremost, I want to thank everyone who is currently serving in uniform and has served in uniform. You are the reason we are able to do the things we are able to do,” said Flemingsburg Police Chief Brian Bowling. “Thank you to our local leadership for putting policies in place that allow us to be successful. That was the guiding piece to making all this work.”
Gov. Beshear named the Flemingsburg Police Department as this week’s Team Kentucky All-Stars.
