National Police Week 2014
By MADD | May 13, 2014| 4 Comments | Filed in: Drugged Driving , General

This week is National Police Week, a time to recognize the service and sacrifice of U.S. law enforcement.

At MADD, we consider law enforcement to be our first, most natural partner. These are our heroes that make our roadways safe. They work long hours, deal with difficult situations, and put themselves in danger on a daily basis—and some pay the ultimate price. Click here to read a blog post from earlier this year about line-of-duty officer deaths.

High-visibility law enforcement techniques that catch drunk drivers and discourage others from driving drunk are part of our Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving®. These techniques have been proven to reduce drunk driving deaths by 20 percent.  That is why MADD works so closely with the officers who keep our families safe on and off the roads, and honors those who have been killed or injured in the line of duty during this National Police Week and every week of the year.

What can you do to help officers catch and detain drunk drivers? Learn how to spot a drunk driver and what to do when you see one here.

Thank goodness we have law enforcement to help keep us safe on the roads. They are an essential part of the legal system and I hope we can see more police arrive home safely this year. Edward Teller, http://www.macneilfirm.com/dui-traffic/
