The 22nd Buckle Down Awards recognized Oklahoma's top cop who keep roads safe.

The officers were recognized at a ceremony at Tulsa Technology Center in Owasso.

The awards have grown from a small traffic safety recognition program to the largest law enforcement recognition program in the state.

The awards left some officers, like Mounds Police Assistant Chief Craig Murray, speechless.

"You know, I am very emotional person anyways, and, you know, I could tear up in an instant but again to be recognized by my peers, for a job I love," Murray said with tears in his eyes.

State Farm Insurance also presented a $5,000 good neighbor grant to the program.
