The Tuscaloosa Police Department recently received a special award. On July 24, in the Tuscaloosa City Council Chambers, the Department of Defense Office of the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) presented the Patriot Award to Tuscaloosa Police Chief Steven Anderson.

TPD was nominated for the Patriot Award by TPD Officer Alexander A. Albaradea, a member of A Company, 167th Infantry, Alabama National Guard.

The Patriot Award reflects the efforts made to support citizen warriors through a wide-range of measures, including flexible schedules, time off prior to and after deployment, caring for families, and granting leaves of absence if needed.

ESGR, a Department of Defense program, was established in 1972 to promote cooperation and understanding between Reserve Component Service members and their civilian employers and to assist in the resolution of conflicts arising from an employee's military commitment.
