On July 26, the Georgia Sheriffs' Association awarded Dade County Sheriff’s Major Tommy Bradford as Deputy Sheriff of the Year for his efforts during a burglary pursuit in Trenton, Georgia last year.

During a chase of a burglary suspect, Bradford lost part of his left leg and sustained various injuries when the suspect ran him over with her car.

The Dade County Sheriff's Office commented on the ceremony, stating, "Not a day goes by that we aren't proud of Major Bradford and his recovery!"
