PGPD Honored For DUI Enforcement

                                                  Cpl. Knight, Sgt. Ashton, Cpl. Phillips

Members of the Prince George’s County Police Department were honored at the 11th Annual Maryland DUI Law Enforcement Awards.  The ceremony was Sunday, September 27th, at the Carroll County Agricultural Center in Westminster.   Corporal Mark Phillips, assigned to the Traffic Enforcement Division, and Corporal Christopher Lord, assigned to the Motors Unit, each earned their first DUI Enforcement Awards. The award is presented to the 2011 top producing officers within each agency for DUI arrests.  Corporal Willard Knight, who is now assigned to the Traffic Enforcement Division, earned a Meritorious Recognition Award. The award is an opportunity to recognize officers assigned to traffic and patrol duties who go above and beyond the call of duty to prioritize impaired driving enforcement.  Congratulations to them all.

I hope that this enforcement did not go beyond an individual's rights as targeting drivers to earn Top Gun Awards has become prevelent in law enforcement in many regions of the state and nation. And there is a huge economic benefit to those counties and states that allow our civil liberties to be undermined by this cash cow.
