Costa Mesa Traffic Officers Recognized at Annual MADD Luncheon

The Orange County chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) honored police officers, from Orange County agencies, for their distinguished efforts arresting driving under the influence (DUI) drivers during 2013. MADD hosted the 27th Annual Law Enforcement and Prosecutor Recognition Luncheon yesterday, March 13, 2014, to honor both Orange County prosecutors and police officers for their outstanding contributions supporting the enforcement of impaired drivers and prosecution of DUI cases. The luncheon was held at the Richard Nixon Library in Yorba Linda.

At the luncheon, 13 officers were recognized as Century Award recipients – each of these officers had arrested over 100 driving under the influence (DUI) drivers in 2013. In addition, a single officer received a Double Century Award for having made over 200 DUI arrests in 2013. Six of these 14 awardees were Costa Mesa Police Officers. Awarded Century Award recipients shown in the photo (left-to-right) include Costa Mesa Police Officers Jeff Horn, Jose Torres, Erik Rosado, Oscar Reyes and Crystal Rodriguez. (Not shown is Century Award recipient CMPD Officer Jason Hatton.)

MADD is a nationwide, non-profit organization that works to stop drunken driving, support victims, survivors, and families affected by drunken driving, and prevent underage drinking. The Orange County Chapter of MADD was formed in 1981 and offers services and education to the local community, including youth programs, victim services, and special events. MADD works closely with Orange County law enforcement agencies to support the prosecution and apprehension of those who put the public at risk by driving under the influence of alcohol.
