The National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution (NSSAR) present their Law Enforcement Commendation Medal to those police officers who have served with distinction and devotion in the field of law enforcement. On February 2, at the Lake-Sumter SAR Chapter monthly meeting, Officer Travonte Kitchen of the Leesburg Police Department, currently a school resource officer, was presented with the NSSAR Law Enforcement Medal for willingly volunteering his off-duty time for community events such as the department’s National Night Out event; Shop with a Cop; Christmas bicycle give-away program and many more. Officer Kitchen was also selected by his peers as the Leesburg Police Officer of the year in 2017. There is no greater honor than to be honored by one’s peers. Congratulations Officer Kitchen and thank you for your service.
