Several area law enforcement officers recently received awards presented by the Piedmont Alcohol Safety Action Program.

This 18th annual event recognizes officers who have been able to identify and write at least five drunk driving violations over the course of the past year.

Kenbridge Police Sergeant Aaron Peter was among the officers honored during the  event held in Farmville. Sergeant Peter has been with the Kenbridge Police Force for just over three years and had seven DUI stops and arrest this past year.

DUI accidents are responsible nearly thirty-four percent of traffic fatalities. These startling numbers should really come as no surprise, but highlight the fact that this continues to be a major issue on highways each year.

VASAP recognizes law enforcement throughout the region that have helped keep the highways safe, by stopping and arresting drivers who are driving under the influence.

The event featured representatives from M.A.D.D. and Nationwide Insurance who applauded the  winners of this award for their diligent police work.

Kenbridge Police Chief Raymond Hite stated, “Sergeant Peter continues to be a great member of our department and work such as this helps keep our local citizens safe  throughout the community.

Sergeant Peter stated, “I am proud to have received this award and to be able to serve the town of Kenbridge and police department.”
