OKLAHOMA CITY – Sen. Micheal Bergstrom was presented with the Oklahoma Legislative Award from the Oklahoma Sheriff’s Association on September 24.
The plaque given to Bergstrom recognizes the work the Adair Republican has done at the state capitol to help sheriff's offices across the state. Area Representatives Josh West and Kyle Hilbert were also presented with the award.
“I was honored to be presented with this award from the Sheriff’s Association this week alongside my fellow colleagues from northeastern Oklahoma,” said Bergstrom. “I was pleased to see Sheriff Harlan Moore and Sheriff Heath Winfrey at the event.
Bergstrom said he appreciates the chance to work with members of the law enforcement community to ensure safer communities for Oklahomans.
“As a legislator, it is a unique opportunity to work with sheriff’s offices to ensure they have the tools to effectively and safely do their jobs,” said Bergstrom. “Building working relationships with the Sheriff’s Association to find ways to make difficult and dangerous jobs easier makes the partnership between law enforcement and legislators a vital one.”
