DUI Attorney in Tampa Reports
“Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Jose Ramirez has been named the winner of FHP’s 2015 Hurd-Smith award.  Trooper Ramirez was honored by FHP and MADD during a ceremony July 24. The Hurd-Smith award is given to the FHP trooper with the most DUI arrests in a single year. In 2014, Trooper Ramirez had 183 DUI arrests.” Ramirez was an award-winner in 2012,. He did not arrest enough to be a winner in 2013. So, in 2014, he really kicked into high gear to get as many arrests as he could to regain the crown.

The record for arrests in a single year was set in 2004, when a Tampa Bay area cop nailed 300 arrests. There are no statistics on how many of these record-setting arrests resulted in convictions.

“MADD and FHP recognized seven troopers from across the state as Century Achievers for their efforts to remove impaired drivers from the roadways by making more than 100 DUI arrests in 2013: Troopers Anthony Palese, Deborah Hawkins, Gregory Healy, Jose Ramirez, Joshua Evans, Niles Daughtry and Sgt. Mark Castleberry.”
