MADD Virginia 2021 Law Enforcement Award Recipients Named

On October 20th 2021, MADD Virginia held a statewide law enforcement recognition ceremony. We do this each year to honor and recognize the officers who have been identified by their localities as having the most impaired driving arrests for their department, or for their enforcement, training and/or education efforts related to stopping impaired driving in their communities.

This event would have not been possible without this years sponsors. A BIG thank you to: State Farm®, ALLEN ALLEN ALLEN & ALLEN, Richmond Ford, News 6, Walmart, The Hill and Chambers Families, and Mike Goodove of Swartz Taliaferro Swartz & Goodove.
