Chris Pulver Named 2016 Trooper of the Year

For many years, Trooper Chris Pulver has hoped to someday be Trooper of the Year.

“It means quite a bit to me, honestly,” Pulver said.

After 18 years on the force, he’s earned that title by the North Dakota Motor Carrier Association.

“I could remember as a young trooper just starting out and seeing the pictures of the guys that previously have been Troopers of the Year and just thinking to myself that it would be a great honor and a great point in my career to be able to reach that goal someday. I just honestly never thought it was going to come true.”

The honor reflects the trucking industry’s gratitude to troopers like Pulver, who work to keep the highways safe.

For Pulver, 

“It’s something, honestly, that I’ve wanted to do since I was a little kid. I’ve always wanted to be a police officer,” he said.

He’s following his dad’s footsteps, “I guess law enforcement kind of runs in my blood.”

It’s a job he’s always dreamed of, but he said he’d never be able to do it alone.

Trooper Pulver said, “My wife, I know she’s very proud of me, and I can honestly say I wouldn’t be here. I wouldn’t have gotten the award without her. She’s absolutely my rock.”

He also paid his thanks to his two kids, who he said have had to make many sacrifices to be without their dad.
 
But he said it’s thanks to their support that he’s been able to acquire the title of Trooper of the Year.
