Detective Mullins is receiving this award as a result of his consistent and professional dedication to excellence in investigating domestic violence related crimes.

This award was created in memory of Bristol Tennessee Police Officer Mark Vance, who was tragically killed while responding to a domestic violence incident on November 27, 2004. For a memorial tribute to Officer Mark Vance, please visit the following link to the Officer Down Memorial Page:
