FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 12/11/2013

STATE REP. CHRIS TURNER AGAIN NAMED CLEAT'S "BEST OF THE HOUSE"

Turner Honored by Recognition from State's Largest Police Association

AUSTIN - On Monday, State Representative Chris Turner received the "Best of the House" award from the Combined Law Enforcement Associations of Texas (CLEAT) in recognition for his work on issues affecting the law enforcement community. This is the second "Best of the House" Turner has received from CLEAT; he also received the award in 2009. This year, Turner is one of only ten House members to receive the recognition.

"To have the opportunity to work on behalf of the brave men and women who serve and protect our community is reward enough," said Representative Turner. "However, I am incredibly honored to receive recognition from the largest police association in Texas."

"Representative Turner has been a loyal friend to law enforcement not only in his district but in the Capitol," said Charley Wilkison, CLEAT’s Executive Director. "He has remained committed to the rights and interests of the law enforcement community no matter the pressure from opposing sides."

Wilkison presented Turner with the award at his Capitol office on December 9, 2013.
