TRPD Officers Jones and Nodine recognized for DUI enforcement.
On April 2, 2014 law enforcement agencies from across South Carolina were recognized by the SC Department of Public Safety Office of Highway Safety for our efforts to reduce impaired driving in 2013 in the 9th annual DUI Enforcement Recognition Ceremony. Awards were presented in several categories and the following three were presented to the TRPD, which had a total of 77 DUI arrests in 2013:
"DUI Silver Hero" award for 25-49 or more DUI arrests: Officer Jeremy Jones
"DUI Bronze Hero" award for 10-24 DUI arrests: Officer Matt Nodine
The TRPD as a whole was also awarded a Watch Guard digital in-car video camera for our entire agency's impaired driving enforcement efforts this past year.
Please join with us in congratulating these officers and everyone here at the TRPD who contributed to keeping our community safe from impaired drivers for another year.
