Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Brian Webb Recognized by Michigan Mothers Against Drunk Driving as one of their “Outstanding Officers” of the Year (2012)
On August 1, 2013, Sheriff’s Deputy Brian Webb will be recognized by Mothers Against Drunk Driving as one of their three (3) “Outstanding Officer of the Year” recipients for his dedication and commitment to enforcing drunk and drugged driving laws.
Each year the Michigan Chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) host a Lifesavers Awards Luncheon as a way to recognize law enforcement officers who work diligently to support the mission of MADD and its Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving. MADD defines “Outstanding Officer” as an officer who made a difference during the year (2012) in the areas of education, prevention, policy, or enforcement which contributed to a reduction in impaired driving deaths and injuries.
Deputy Webb made 42 Operating While under the Influence (OWI) arrests in 2012. He has already made another 32 OWI arrests in 2013.
As stated by Sheriff’s Office Police Services Commander Dieter Heren, “These numbers are notable, but add in the fact that he is a relatively new Deputy with our agency and it is truly impressive.”
Deputy Webb’s OWI enforcement numbers over the last 18 months include:
34 OWI 1st Offense arrests
7 OWI 2nd Offense arrests
2 OWI 3rd Offense arrests
23 OUID arrests (drugged driving)
7 High Blood Alcohol Content (BAC)/Superdrunk arrests
15 Drug Recognition Expert (DRE) evaluations
Sheriff Clayton and the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office commend Deputy Webb for his outstanding performance in helping to reduce the impact of drunk and drugged driving in Washtenaw County.
“A safe driving environment is an essential part of a comprehensive approach to community public safety, including community education, effective traffic engineering and consistent traffic enforcement. There’s no leeway for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and we will continue to assertively enforce the law around this important public safety issue.”
