The Des Moines Police Department has recognized Ted Lussem with the 2012 Crime Fighter Community Service Award. This was awarded for his work coordinating the 25 year relationship with the Trusted Choice / Independent Insurance Agents of Des Moines and the Crime Fighter Program.
This relationship has raised over $80,000 from 1981 – 2011 to make Des Moines a better place to work and live. With encouragement from Mr. Lussem the IMT Group is now the sponsor as a part of their corporate sponsorship of the Des Moines Marathon.
Mr. Lussem was a 2000 inductee to the Iowa Insurance Hall of Fame and is a current board member of the organization.
