DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Mothers Against Drunk Driving held their annual Award of Excellence Law Enforcement Recognition luncheon Thursday.
The event honors officers in southwest Ohio who have distinguished themselves with their service.
It serves as a “Thank You” for all of their hard work to stop impaired driving.
“Most of them are very, very humble. Some of them are very bashful, saying ‘Hey, it’s just my job. This is the profession that I’ve chosen.’ That right there, that persona makes this event even more crucial because they don’t expect a pat on the back. They don’t expect an award,” says Rachel Babich, Program Director with Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
The event was emceed by 2 NEWS Today Anchor John Seibel.
