Wiggins Police Win Prestigious State Award

WIGGINS (WLOX) -- The Wiggins Police Department was honored Friday by the state Department of Public Safety. The Law Enforcement Challenge Award recognizes a job well done for protecting Wiggins residents through DUI and speed enforcement.

Sam Albritton with the Department of Public Safety said the honor is a prestigious one.

"Five out of the entire state are getting this. It's a tremendous opportunity and a very big pat on the back. I know Commissioner Williams and Governor Barbour are tickled to death for the city of Wiggins today," Albritton said.

Wiggins Police Chief Buddy Bell told WLOX News that safety is his department's primary goal, and they are honored for the recognition.
