Milpitas Police Officer receives MADD Award
Submitted By Lt. Sandy Holliday, Milpitas PD
On June 2, 2012, the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS), Mother's Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) hosted the 2012 "Celebrate California Heroes" community recognition dinner in Sacramento, California.
The MADD organization's mission statement is to "stop drunk driving, support the victims of this violent crime and prevent underage drinking." This year's recipient of the 2012 hero award is Officer Kevin Jackson. He has been a Police Officer for six years and is currently assigned to the traffic safety unit as a DUI enforcement officer. In 2011, he apprehended 58 impaired drivers and continuously strives to stop drunk driving in the City of Milpitas.
The Milpitas Police Department congratulates Officer Jackson on his accomplishment.
