This year’s MADD Law Enforcement Recognition (LER) events, sponsored by Toyota Hawaii (Servco), will feature a new category. County Prosecutors have been invited to submit nominations for members of their staff who go “above and beyond” in their challenging task of prosecuting DUI offenders. The recognition ceremonies for 2017 awards will be held the first week of May, 2018, in all four counties. These events receive good press coverage and are highly appreciated by the county police departments. Bottom line: MADD’s LER helps save lives, by inspiring the vital law enforcement community to continue its good work.

MADD Hawaii’s LER Subcommittee comprises Kurt Kendro, Theresa Paulette and Arkie Koehl.
