Posted: Updated:

A highway patrolman from the Jackson area has been named the 2010 Trooper of the Year.

9 troopers from the across the state, one from each district, were nominated for the award.

Heath Farish from Troop C walked away with the top honor.

All of the troopers were recognized for their commitment to law enforcement and going beyond expectations in serving the public.

"It means a lot to get a pat on the back no matter what your job is especially when you're in law enforcement," Farish said. "Most of the relationships that we meet, even if someone appreciates what you do, they're too intimated to thank you for it."

This marks the 13th year for the award put on by the Exchange Club of North Jackson.
