Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge recently awarded the Jefferson County Outstanding Law Enforcement Officer of the Year Award to Special Agents Oscar Bullard and Huston Talley with Arkansas State Police.

Rutledge announced the recognition at the annual awards and recognition luncheon at the 2016 Arkansas Law Enforcement Summit at Camp Robinson.

In addition to the statewide and regional Outstanding Law Enforcement Officer of the Year awards, Rutledge recognized one law enforcement officer from each county as an Outstanding Law Enforcement Officer. These awards recognize college or university, municipal, county, federal or State law enforcement officers who go the extra mile. Nominations were accepted from police chiefs, county sheriffs, county judges, mayors, prosecutors and other state law enforcement leaders from across Arkansas.
