Delaware State Police honored a local community business the agency has had a relationship with for decades.
William Chambers Jr., owner of William Chambers and Son, was honored Wednesday at the State Police Awards.
The towing company he operates, which his father started as a blacksmith shop in Viola in 1915 before beginning to repair vehicles in 1919, is the towing company with the longest history of working with state police, dating back to when the agency was founded in 1923.
The company expanded to Seaford in 1967.
Chambers and his wife, Betty, still run the company out of their Viola office.
Chambers was honored by Col. Robert Coupe and other officials.
Coupe also named Cpl. Matt Addonizio Trooper of the Year for Troop 3 in Camden.
