Each year, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) Colorado and the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) present the Law Enforcement Champion Awards for Colorado.

A law enforcement champion is an individual with outstanding contributions in the prevention and enforcement of impaired driving, traffic safety, or occupant protection. This can be demonstrated by efforts such as DUI patrols or safety belt campaigns during the established enforcement periods throughout the year. It can also be demonstrated by advanced training, drug recognition expert activity, high visibility enforcement tactics, community engagement, prevention programs, and other related activities.

Prior to 2019, MADD Colorado presented its Law Enforcement Recognition Awards from 2009 to 2018. CDOT also presented its Traffic Safety Champion Awards.
