DENVER, Sept. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) Colorado, along with its youth volunteers, presented 17 awards to outstanding individuals and teams of Colorado law enforcement officers and agencies who are making a difference in the community, during the 2013 MADD Colorado Law Enforcement Recognition Dinner and Awards Ceremony tonight.
"This is a particularly special event for MADD Colorado," said Christopher Pierce, MADD Colorado State Executive Director. "Not only do we have the privilege of recognizing the lifesaving efforts of Colorado law enforcement officers and agencies, but we also do so with the enthusiasm of our future leaders – our youth volunteers."
The following winners were chosen based on nominations received from various agencies across the state:
"The Colorado Department of Transportation is so proud of the achievements made by the dedicated law enforcement professionals throughout the state of Colorado," said Darrell Lingk, Director of the Office of Transportation Safety at CDOT. "Whether it's informing parents of the importance of properly restraining children in the car, educating Coloradans on how wearing a seat belt can save their life in a motor vehicle crash or keeping impaired drivers off our roads, the men and women of Colorado's law enforcement are our everyday heroes. We're honored to partner with MADD to give them the recognition they deserve."
This evening's program was presented by the law firm of Bachus & Schanker, MADD Colorado's 2013 Statewide Sponsor, with additional support from the Colorado Department of Transportation and the Ali Meyer Foundation.
