POUGHKEEPSIE – Dutchess County’s seven top cops were honored Thursday at the annual STOP-DWI luncheon in Poughkeepsie.
“These awards symbolize the dedication and vigilance our law enforcement officials continue to display to keep our local residents as safe as possible on the road – not just during the upcoming holiday season, but year-round,” said County Legislator Kenneth Roman.
STOP-DWI’s mission is to deter drunk/drugged driving through enhanced enforcement, prosecution, rehabilitation, and education services.
