(UNDATED) - On September 18-22, 2016, the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) held its 2016 Annual Conference and Exhibition in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Approximately 600 government officials, enforcement and industry members attended the conference in support of the Alliance's mission to improve commercial motor vehicle safety and uniformity throughout North America.

The Indiana State Police (ISP) Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division (CVED) received two awards related to commercial vehicle safety from the United States Department of Transportation's (USDOT) Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).

For the ninth consecutive year, the ISP CVED received the FMCSA's Safety Enforcement Award for federal fiscal year 2015. This award is presented annually to one state in recognition of the highest achieving safety enforcement program in the United States.

ISP CVED also received an Honorable Mention Award for Commercial Vehicle Fatality Rate Improvement in Federal Fiscal Year 2015. This award is in recognition of Indiana's efforts to reduce CMV related fatal crashes.

"The Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division is solely focused on improving commercial vehicle safety in Indiana through education and enforcement," stated Indiana State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division Assistant Commander, Captain Jon Smithers. "The Motor Carrier Inspectors and CVED troopers work hard every day to ensure the public's safety and it is extremely gratifying to see them recognized for their efforts."
