Dunlap PD named Freedom Award Recipient
Washington (WDEF) – Secretary of Defense James N. Mattis named the Dunlap Police Department a recipient of the 2018 Employer Support Freedom Award, signifying the department as one of the top employers for National Guard and Reserve service members.
The department, along with 14 other recipients, joins 250 past recipients of the award and was selected from nearly 2,000 employers who were nominated by more than 2,350 Guard and Reserve service member employees.
“It is my pleasure to recognize these 15 outstanding civilian employers,” said Mattis. “Our National Guard and Reserve members are a vital part of our defense strategy and deserve as much support as this country can provide. These 15 employers lead the way in providing that. We are grateful to them for their role in helping to keep our nation safe and secure.”
The freedom award was established in 1996 to draw attention to the support provided by patriotic employers who go above and beyond in support of their Reserve Component employees.
