Winning an Arrest Contest for DUI
DUI cops win and innocent citizens lose? Three more Florida DUI cops / police officers have been recognized by MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) for their diligent enforcement of drunk driving laws in 2013. The officers are: Jason Denney with 28 DUI arrests; Travis White, with 20 DUI arrests; and Kevin Skelton, with 12 DUI arrests. The officers were treated to dinner. In 2013, the police department also received 1st place honors in a “DUI Challenge” and a ‘Law Enforcement Challenge.” Not sure what those other contests were, but it appears that citizens’ arrests are prizes in this despicable contest.
Cops Issue a Press Release?
According to a department press release: “By taking part in traffic and safety events including ‘Click It or Ticket’ and ‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over,’ the . . . Police Department is making significant and positive impacts in our community by reducing traffic related crashes, injuries and fatalities.” We suspect there were no demerits for people that were arrested and then cleared after hours in jail.
