2015 12th Annual Trey Hutchison Award Recipients

On Friday, October 2, 2015, at Ernest’s Orleans Restaurant, 1601 Spring Street, the Caddo/Bossier Domestic Violence Task Force hosted the 12th Annual Trey Hutchison Awards Banquet to honor the memory of Officer Trey Hutchison, Bossier City Police Department, who was slain in August 2004 while responding to a domestic violence call.

Each year the task force selects nominees in law enforcement from both Caddo and Bossier parishes who, through their tireless efforts in either investigation, prosecution or legislation, have championed the protective rights of domestic violence victims and their families. The mission of the task force is to use every available resource to inform, enlighten and educate our citizens and our law enforcement partners, of the devastating impact the crime of domestic violence has on every day society. The organization is comprised of members from area law enforcement officers, the Caddo and Bossier District Attorney’s offices, Family Violence Programs, and concerned citizens.

On March 6, 2007, Representative Jane Smith, while serving on the Criminal Justice Committee, authored and introduced the “Trey Hutchison Act,” HB 88, which creates a database to track offenders who have assaulted a peace officer.

The keynote speaker for today’s event was Trey’s father, Mark Hutchison, a staunch advocate for victim’s rights and a strong supporter of both the task force and law enforcement. “As a little boy, Trey always wanted to be the police, and a cowboy,” Mark said. “When Trey took me on a ride-a-long, I saw the interaction between Trey and the good and not-so-good of society to be able to tell his Mother, ‘Our boy’s gonna be alright.’”
