DEVENS, Mass. (AP) - The Massachusetts chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving is honoring people and organizations working to keep impaired drivers off the state’s roads.
MADD’s annual Law Enforcement Recognition Breakfast is scheduled for Tuesday at the Devens Common Center.
The officers and troopers being honored have been nominated by their superiors and chosen by a committee, including representatives from the Massachusetts State Police.
MADD Massachusetts Program Director Mary Kate DePamphilis says it’s important for the honorees to know that their efforts are appreciated.
State police Lt. Dan Griffin says declines in the number of alcohol-related crashes and fatalities are being offset by a rise in the number of drug-impaired drivers.
Cindy Campbell, a former traffic reporter, longtime road safety advocate, and MADD volunteer, will serve as the emcee.
