Thursday morning seven patrol deputies assigned to the Harris County Toll Road Authority’s Incident Management Division were recognized for their DWI enforcement efforts.
Representatives from Mothers Against Drunk Driving were on hand at the special breakfast to honor the deputies, who have each arrested 50 or more DWI suspects.
Under the command of Assistant Chief Randy Johnson, HCTRA’s Incident Management Division has championed the cause and challenge of getting suspected drunk drivers off the tollroad system.
In 2014, 1,086 DWI/DUI suspects were arrested.
Officials say every arrest of a DWI suspect will potentially save a life.
