Law enforcement officers from five different agencies in Eddy County were recognized and thanked for their efforts in combating drunk driving. The recognition took place during the Eddy County DWI Program Law Enforcement Tribute on December 12.

The ceremony, according to Eddy County DWI Program Director Debra Hampton, began in 2008 to align with the National Impaired Driving Prevention Month. Hampton emphasized that the awards ceremony serves to appreciate the officers from the Carlsbad Police Department, Artesia Police Department, Loving Police Department, New Mexico State Police and Eddy County Sheriff’s Office, for their dedication to keeping citizens and drivers safe from intoxicated and impaired drivers.
