A large crowd of law enforcement officials from southwest Ohio met in Loveland for a special luncheon Thursday, April 16. Mothers Against Drunk Driving hosted the Third Annual Recognition and Top Cop Awards to honor outstanding efforts in the community to stop impaired driving.
The Top Cops were selected from nominations submitted by their departments with consideration on the number of drunk driving arrests, their work with victims, success of drunk driving convictions and outstanding work in public awareness of the dangers of drunk driving and underage drinking through work with their department or other community organizations.
“Today we recognize those who have had a positive impact on MADD’s ability to do our life-saving work for the community. We are determined to win the fight against drunk driving,” said MADD Chairman Lew Hollinger. “Volunteers within our communities have been lending support to our organization and they are helping to make MADD a powerful, believable and credible organization. There is a lot of work to be done and we will continue to work together to rid the roadways of impaired drivers.”
