Submitted By Sgt. Raj Maharaj, Milpitas PD
On June 1, 2013, the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS), Mother's Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) hosted their 15th annual community recognition dinner in Sacramento, California.
MADD's mission statement is "stop drunk driving, support the victims of this violent crime and prevent underage drinking."
This year's Milpitas Police Department recipient of the 2013 MADD California Hero Award is Officer Kevin Jackson. Officer Jackson has been a Police Officer for seven years and is currently assigned to the Traffic Safety Unit as a DUI enforcement officer. In 2012, he apprehended 42 impaired drivers and continuously strives to stop drunk driving in the City of Milpitas.
The Milpitas Police Department congratulates Officer Jackson on his accomplishment.
