Brad Edwards Consumer Champion Award honors deputy

OKLAHOMA CITY — Our In Your Corner team was busy Thursday helping kick off Consumer Protection Day at the State Capitol. We teamed up with Attorney General Scott Pruitt and other consumer protection groups to educate the public on identity theft.

Shred-It treated Oklahomans to free document shredding on the Capitol’s front lawn.

A big part of the day was the presentation of the Brad Edwards Consumer Champion Award, a tribute to honor the legacy of our late friend and colleague, the original In Your Corner reporter, Brad Edwards.

Attorney General Pruitt and our own Ashton Edwards, Brad’s daughter, presented the Brad Edwards Consumer Champion Award to Deputy Wayne Pauley at the Capitol.

Deputy Pauley of the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Department is a man who continues to go above and beyond to protect senior citizens.

What Deputy Wayne Pauley does is the epitome of what Brad Edwards stood for.

For the past 13 years, Deputy Pauley has been an advocate for seniors and vulnerable adults along with his regular duties.

As Brad did with his In Your Corner reports, Pauley educates seniors to spot possible fraud and exploitation.

Wayne goes the extra mile making home visits and taking the elderly to and from doctor visits.

Attorney General Pruitt said, “It’s a great day to recognize him and recognize his efforts so that all of us in Oklahoma can be inspired to make a difference.”

Congratulations to the Brad Edwards Consumer Champion Award finalists:

Special Agent Kristofor Raper of Oklahoma City
Cleveland County Detective Jonathan Prykryl of Moore
Assistant District Attorney William Riley of Lawton
