Thompson Honored Sheriff Donny Turner announced today that Larry Thompson, Sr. has been posthu- mously given the first ever Troup County Crime Prevention award. A plaque will be presented to his widow, Carolyn Thompson. Thompson was the owner of WTRP radio station at the time of his death in September and was the host of the popular morning radio program "Straight Talk." The show often gave law enforcement officers a chance to talk about issues in the community and also allowed listeners a chance to call in with their concerns. "Every time we had a new crime prevention program to start, we always went through Larry and WTRP to present it to the people and ask for their opinion," Sheriff Turner says. "We debuted the Junior Deputy program the Neighborhood Watch program, D.A.R.E., the Explorers and even Crime Stoppers on Larry's show. He would give us a chance to pitch it to the people and that allowed them to give us feedback. "His listeners could always count on him to let them know what was going on with local laws and ways they could get involved. We felt that he prob- ably helped us out as much as any person in the community over the last seven years," Turner continues. Thompson could be heard many mornings reminding cit- izens to turn on their headlights while driving in the rain or telling people to slow down on the roads. "He always allowed us to tell people what we needed to say," Turner continues. "But,he was always ready to tell the peo- ple what he needed to say as well. That's what set 'Larry apart from all the others. He was fair and we always appre- ciated that the people of Troup County and law enforcement officers across the area all ben- efited from what he stood for." Thompson is the first ever recipient of the Troup County Crime Prevention Award. In future years, the award will be given out to commemorate the beginning of Crime Prevention Month which is always held in October. Many events are scheduled for the area this month to mark Crime Prevention Month including the annual tying of red ribbons on county borders around Troup County. One block south of Downtown .
