Motor Carrier Officer of the Year
Motor Carrier Officer Christopher Russo of the Jackson Post was named Motor Carrier Officer of the Year.
The Motor Carrier Officer of the Year Award recognizes the MSP motor carrier officer who symbolizes outstanding professional ethics, dedication to duty and concern for giving back to their community.
“Motor Carrier Officer Russo is known for his professionalism and leadership. He excels in providing educational opportunities for industry partners and students alike,” said Etue. “His reputation of outstanding work performance, commercial vehicle enforcement knowledge and relentless commitment to service make him an excellent choice for the Motor Carrier Officer of the Year Award.”
As a field training officer, Russo recently identified ways to improve field training for new motor carrier officers. He is regarded as an expert in commercial vehicle enforcement by his peers and regularly assists with developing enforcement plans for his post area.
Russo’s positive image extends into the community too, where he is frequently seen at special events and classroom activities and supports the Special Olympics with annual monetary donations.
Russo enlisted with the MSP in 2012, graduating as a member of the 18th Motor Carrier Officer Recruit School. Prior to serving at the Jackson Post, he served at the Monroe Post.
