For the second time in a row, an Austin Peay police officer has won the Outstanding Leadership Award at the Tennessee Law Enforcement Training Academy.

Officer Derrick E. Oliver Sr. was presented the award at his Academy graduation Friday, Feb. 28, on behalf of the Tennessee Association of Chiefs of Police.

APSU Officer Lisa Pfaff won the award last December in the previous class.

"It's the first time in recent memory that one department, let alone a department the size of Austin Peay's, has won consecutive awards at the statewide academy," said Eric Provost, chief of police and director of public safety at Austin Peay.

APSU's record of performance at the academy has been noteworthy. Of five officers attending within the past year, three served as class leader, two (including Oliver) were elected class president by their peers, two won the Leadership Award and one was the physical fitness honor graduate.
