On May 3, 2023, MADD Alabama honored Law Enforcement Heroes in the state in our 1st Annual Law Enforcement Recognition Awards.  This year’s awardees came from the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency, Mobile Police Department, Opelika Police Department, and Prattville Police Department.


MADD Alabama Victim Services Specialists, Jasmine Moore and Erin Adams, were able to meet with a few of the winning Officers and Troopers in person to congratulate them on their superior DUI arrest achievement in 2022.


To the winning Officers, Troopers, and Deputies who we were unable to congratulate in person, please know that we appreciate your dedication to keeping our roads safe.


Congratulations to all of the 2023 Law Enforcement Recognition winners!
