Congratulations to Trond Sagbakken and Kenneth Rostveit, two Norwegian officers who have recently received TISPOL President's Awards for their outstanding contributions to roads policing.
Trond and Kenneth have distinguished themselves by their exceptional skills that have a significant impact in reducing the number of fatal and serious collisions on Norwegian roads. Through their professional and dedicated work they have arrested more than 350 impaired drink and drugs drivers and other criminals.
While focusing on detecting drink/drug drivers, they have also seized many kilograms of drugs over the years. Despite receiving threats from criminals in their duty area, they have continued to work on preventing serious traffic accidents by arresting drug-impaired drivers.
TISPOL President Paolo Cestra congratulated the two officers during a ceremony in Oslo recently. "Both Trond and Kenneth have made enormous contributions to the safety and wellbeing of the communities they serve. We, along with their Norwegian colleagues, are very proud of their dedication and commitment," he said.
