New Police Officer Honoured for Work Against Drunk Driving

Gainesville, Florida police officer Joey Devore will be honoured later this spring for his work against drunk driving in 2008. Devore made more than 100 DUI arrests last year, and his work has been singled out by Mothers Against Drunk Driving. Devore will be among dozens of Florida officers who will be honoured at the annual Florida MADD banquet. The banquet is held so officers know their work against drunk driving is appreciated.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, in the state alone there are approximately 22,000 alcohol-related crashes each year, which results in around 1,200 deaths, and 16,000 injuries.
