October 2022 Officer of the Month
Officer Blake Kelley
Tyler Police Department, Texas
MADD proudly recognizes Officer Blake Kelley of the Tyler Police Department as our Officer of the Month for October 2022. Officer Kelley joined the Tyler Police Department in 2016. He has a passion for traffic safety and impaired driving enforcement.
Officer Kelley dedicates his time to impaired driving enforcement. In 2019, he had 53 impaired driving arrests. In 2020, he was on track to beat the previous year’s record but was unable to do so, due to an injury. In 2021, again due the injury, in only six months of enforcement work, he had 28 impaired driving arrests. To date, in 2022 he has 68 arrests.
Officer Kelley has been the recipient of MADD’s Outstanding Service Award for his impaired driving arrests in 2019, 2020 and 2021.
MADD National is proud to recognize Officer Blake Kelley as the October 2022 Officer of the Month. We thank him for his many years of dedicated service to the citizens of Tyler and the State of Texas.
