MADD honoring top DUI catchers
Their mission is to stop drunk driving and on Friday night, Mothers Against Drunk Driving will honor those officers who made the most DUI arrests in 2003.
This is our way of thanking them for getting the drunks off the road, said Marsha Masters, MADD President. Its our way of showing our appreciation to them.
Ten law enforcement officers, one from each agency in Kitsap County, will be honored during MADDs annual Law Enforcement Awards Ceremony.
The ceremony will be held in the ballroom of the Red Lion Silverdale Hotel. Doors open at 6 p.m. with the program starting at 6:30 p.m. The hour and a half awards ceremony will include a candlelight vigil to remember the victims of drunk driving. A victim board also will be on display. The eight kids who won MADDs 2003 poster/essay/video contest will be recognized and their posters will be featured at the ceremony.
Community members who have supported MADD, including officials from the Kitsap County Prosecutors Office who handled DUI cases will be honored. Masters is expecting 100 to 150 people to attend the program. At the end of the award ceremony, KCSO officers will head out on an emphasis patrol to cover the area surrounding the Whaling Days festivities.
