(Dry Ridge, KY) - One Kentucky State Police sergeant, 17 troopers and two Commercial Vehicle Officers were among a group of 183 Kentucky law enforcement officers from 161 agencies recognized on Dec. 4 at the 2008 Governor's Impaired Driving Enforcement Awards ceremony in Lexington.

"As of December 7, preliminary reports show that 161 people have lost their lives this year on Kentucky roads in crashes involving alcohol," notes Kentucky State Police Commissioner Rodney Brewer. "Traffic enforcement efforts have a direct impact on this problem by taking potential killers off the road. The officers receiving these awards are to be commended for the lives they have helped to save," he adds.

The troopers and officers accounted for a total of 1,471 impaired driving arrests during the past year. Trooper David Holland from Kentucky State Police Post 6 was one of the units honored during the ceremony.
