The Police Department video “Remembering Officer Charles Whites” received the Award of Distinction (second place) in the Profile of a Person, Business or Organization category for the 2020 Government Programming Awards by the National Association of Telecommunication Officers and Advisors (NATOA). The video was published in April 2019 to honor one year since the passing of Officer Whites, who was the first and only Round Rock Police Officer to die in the line of duty.
The video features interviews with those that knew Officer Charles Whites — the person and the Officer. It shows footage of an honorary chair being constructed and then presented to the Department, where it will forever reside.
The video was created by Department multi-media specialist John Estrada. The Department previously won a 2019 Award of Honor from NATOA for its Operation Front Porch PSA.
