MADD April 2022 Officer of the Month
Chief Ryan Kinnan
Auburn Police Department, California
MADD National selects Chief Ryan Kinnan as our Officer of the Month for April 2022. Chief Kinnan is the Chief of the Auburn, California Police Department.
Chief Ryan Kinnan takes a proactive approach to keeping our roads safe. MADD works closely with him and the Auburn Police Department on education and awareness for businesses where learning about the impact of DUI will become a part of their liquor license process.
Chief Kinnan also took the initiative to make last August, Drunk Driver Awareness Month for his department and city. The Auburn Police Department has designed and produced the first ever MADD Police Awareness Patch. All officers in the Auburn Police Department wore the patch on their uniform during the month of August 2021. The Chief also included awareness posts on the department’s social media during the campaign.
Chief Kinnan is a strong supporter of MADD and our mission to end drunk driving. He never says no to MADD and fully supports the mission.
We are proud to select Chief Ryan Kinnan of the Auburn, California Police Department as the MADD April 2022 Officer of the Month. We wish him the best in safety and wellness in the remaining years of his career and service to the citizens of Auburn and the State of California.
Thank you to MADD Northern California, Sacramento Affiliate’s Program Coordinator Lori Bergenstock and Victim Specialist Rhonda Campbell for their nomination of Chief Kinnan for this MADD recognition.
