A retired FBI agent from Salt Lake City has been elected as one of five national vice presidents for the Footprinters.

Lou Bertram, who spent more than 20 years as an FBI agent and now works as a private investigator, was elected at the recent Footprinter National Convention in Santa Clara, Calif.

The Ogden Gold Spike Chapter also earned one of two national awards for the outstanding chapter of the year. Ogden shared the award with a chapter from Denver. Ogden's chapter secretary Kaye Arnold also won the outstanding secretary of the year award.

Footprinters is a civic group comprised of law enforcement personnel and individuals in support of law enforcement. Their annual awards are voted on by the five national vice presidents.

Bertram will be in line to become national president for 2005-2006. Each president serves one year after serving in the five vice presidential spots for one year each.

Bertram is also a past president of the Salt Lake City Antelope Island Footprinters Chapter and has a son who works for the Salt Lake County Sheriff's Office, according to Footprinters spokesman Stan Jacobson.

Footprinters also announced the start of the "Charlie Fratto Humanitarian Award," which will be given beginning in 2001. Fratto was a past president of the Salt Lake City Antelope Island Chapter.
