The Genesee County Sheriff’s Office is being recognized by the state and Mothers Against Drunk Driving for its efforts in deterring drunk driving.
It was awarded a “Law Enforcement Agency Award” by the state’s STOP-DWI Foundation, MADD and the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee in Schenectady recently.
In 2012, deputies with the sheriff’s office made 150 DWI arrests, checked 49 establishments for sales to minors and charged 700 with illegal possession of alcohol at Darien Lake.
They also instructed over 350 students on the D.A.R.E program about the ramifications of alcohol and drug abuse.
