Officer of the Year: Each year the 100 Club of Houston names a law enforcement officer of the year. The peace officer chosen is a hero that has gone above and beyond the call of duty. The 2019 Officer of the Year is Liberty County Deputy Sheriff Richard Whitten. Deputy Whitten chased a fleeing murder suspect who subsequently shot Deputy Whitten in the neck. Monday Deputy Whitten died at a Houston Medical Facility. The 100 Club is a non-profit organization created to assist families of fallen first responders and to offer financial assistance. On Friday Liberty County Sheriff Bobby Rader was notified by mail that Deputy Richard Whitten was named 100 Club of Houston Officer of the year for 2019.
