    WATERBURY — Officials say three Vermont law enforcement agencies have been recognized nationally for their traffic safety programs.

    The Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles, Enforcement and Safety Division won first place in the special awards category at the International Association of Chiefs of Police conference in Philadelphia. The state says DMV inspectors have worked with police and the commercial vehicle industry to raise the standard among commercial vehicle operators by educating drivers and companies and enforcing laws.

    The Shelburne Police Department received second place for excellence in highway safety initiatives and community outreach for municipal agencies with 11 to 25 officers.

    The Grand Isle County Sheriff’s Department received a National Law Enforcement Challenge Award in the sheriff’s category and was ranked third in the country for sheriffs departments with 25 or fewer members.
