Oneida County STOP DWI Program Recognize’s Law Enforcement Officers

The Oneida County STOP DWI Program said thank you, today to the men and women who protect our roadways with a Recognition breakfast, which was held at MVCC. The breakfast is designed to honor individual officers and Police Agencies in Oneida County for their outstanding DWI Enforcement efforts.

“Today we recognize those Police Officers who save countless lives by preventing, deterring, and removing intoxicated motorists form Oneida County roadways”, Picente said. “This event is a way we can publically thank some of our Law Enforcement for keeping us all safe, especially with summer time vastly approaching.

This event recognized a Police Officer from each agency (with the Joseph D. Corr Memorial Award) in Oneida County for their outstanding DWI enforcement efforts in year 2013. In addition the STOP DWI Program’s Perpetual Agency award, the William M. Weber Accident Reconstruction Award and the Michael C. Austin Community Service Award where also presented. A newly established Oneida County Sheriff’s Law Enforcement Foundation award was presented, as well.
