Several honored at Public Safety Commission meeting

Posted: Updated:

AUSTIN – The Texas Public Safety Commission (PSC) and the Department of Public Safety (DPS) Director Steven McCraw today honored recently appointed Texas Secretary of State John Steen for his service on the Public Safety Commission, two Killeen Police Department officers for foiling an attempt to kill Fort Hood soldiers and two DPS officers who helped arrest a suspect wanted for an Alaska murder.

"Commissioner Steen's dedicated service on the Texas Public Safety Commission the last four years supporting the department's mission and goals has been invaluable, and today's recognition is just a small token of our appreciation," said Director McCraw.  

"The Public Safety Commission greatly benefited from Commissioner Steen's service to the people of Texas and to his commitment to the DPS. His presence will certainly be missed, but he will continue to serve the citizens of Texas in his new position as Texas Secretary of State," said PSC Chair Cynthia Leon. 

Steen received a flag flown over the Texas State Capitol and was made an honorary Texas Ranger Captain. He was also presented with a DPS flag that was carried aboard a DPS aircraft, on a DPS patrol boat and in a Highway Patrol car.
