Sergeant Don Egdorf
Don is a Houston Texas police officer who specializes in drunk driving enforcement. He is a Standardized Field Sobriety Test (SFST) and Drug Recognition Expert (DRE) instructor who travels across the country to speak about fatal crash cases, and investigative techniques he has acquired through his years of experience.
While Don was in high school, his father, who also was a law enforcement officer, was hit by a drunk driver while on duty. Don’s father survived, and the experience inspired Don to join the law enforcement community. Throughout his own career, Don has been involved in five DWI-related crashes and investigated many DWI-related, line-of-duty deaths.
Don is recognized as a National leader in sharing his passion to eliminate impaired driving. His presentations always encourage and inspire officers to enforce impaired driving laws and educate the public concerning the dangers of this violent crime.
Don has volunteered with MADD for many years and serves on the MADD Southeast Texas Advisory Board. He resides in Houston and has two children, a son and a daughter. When not working, Don is an avid hockey fan and spends his spare time doing landscape and nature photography.
