Wednesday, a former Bismarck Police Chief is given an award for his service to the department.
Retired Chief Keith Witt receives the Lone Eagle award, which is given to an active and retired North Dakota Peace Officer each year.
The award recognizes officers who have shown inspiration, guidance and support through their career.
"I guess it comes down to being lucky in the things I pick in my life, picked the right woman as my wife, she's still got me after 34 years and I still have her, and I think I picked the right Police Department," Keith Witt said.
The award was created in 1979 by Herb Eckenroth, who is a retired FBI agent in North Dakota.
