The Transportation Security Administration’s Federal Security Director for upstate New York, Bart R. Johnson, was presented with the National Fusion Center Association’s (NFCA) Lifetime Achievement Award earlier this month at its annual conference in Washington, D.C.
The award highlighted Johnson’s dedication to the service of the country and his many accomplishments. He rose through the ranks of the New York State Police, where he was the Colonel responsible for field operations across the state. He served in both state and local law enforcement for 31 years—24 of which were with the New York State Police. After the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, Johnson developed and implemented numerous counter terrorism programs designed to protect the citizens of New York State.
