Loving honored for 50-year law enforcement career

WASHINGTON D.C. – The National Narcotics Officers Association and the U.S. Senate honored Bowling Green-Warren County Drug Task Force Director Tommy Loving earlier this week for his 50th year in law enforcement.

“Thrilled to see Director Loving getting honored at the national level for his legendary career,” Warren County Commonwealth’s Attorney Chris Cohron said. “Tommy has been at the forefront of drug enforcement policy all while still leading one of the finest drug task forces in the country. Even after 50 years in law enforcement, there’s no slowing him down.”

Loving is a retired Kentucky State Police trooper who started the Bowling Green task force.

The Narcotics Officers Association honored Loving Monday while the Senate recognized him Tuesday.

“I was certainly surprised, honored, I just think, maybe everybody made too big a deal out of it, but I appreciate it,” said Loving.

According to Cohron, Loving helped bring the local law enforcement agencies together to work as a team to combat drugs.
