Newark Officers recognized
Submitted By Newark PD
Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), California Office of Traffic Safety, and the Alameda County Avoid the 21 campaign hosted their annual Law Enforcement Recognition and DUI Training Seminar February 6, 2013. Two Newark Police Officers were recognized for their efforts in removing impaired drivers from Newark roadways during the annual holiday campaign known as Avoid the 21.
NPD Officers Jeff Saunders and Yama Homayoun combined to arrest 34 individuals for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Each Officer received the prestigious "MADD" award for their hard work in this important task. We congratulate them for their determination and dedication to this cause!
