KSP Recognizes Agencies and Officers for Impaired Driving Enforcement Efforts

(FRANKFORT, KY) -Law enforcement officers and agencies from across the state were recognized for outstanding achievement at the 2003 Governor's Impaired Driving Enforcement Awards ceremony held today at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Lexington.

Joe Whittle, general counsel to Lt. Gov. Stephen B. Pence, joined Kentucky State Police Commissioner Patrick N. Simpson in presenting awards to 197 officers and 73 law enforcement agencies for their extraordinary efforts in reducing impaired driving (see attached list). The award recipients are collectively responsible for approximately 30,000 impaired driving arrests during the past year.

"Impaired driving is still a critical problem, not only in Kentucky, but also throughout the United States," said Whittle.
