We are proud to see Mountain View Police Officer Hoang recognized for his dedication to remove drunk drivers from our roadways when he was recently awarded with the MADD California Hero Award. Officer Hoang’s contribution to help MADD achieve its mission to stop drunk driving, support the victims of this violent crime and prevent underage drinking led him to 60 DUI arrests in 2012. Officer Hoang was also awarded Mountain View Police Department’s John Steinwinder Award for the most DUI and 11550 H&S arrests in 2011 and 2012.
“The officers recognized with the MADD California Hero Award are experts in the field of impaired driving enforcement,” said Silas Miers, MADD California Program Manager. “They are leaders in the department in arrests, prevention efforts, and training. Over 160 officers were recognized for the efforts over the last year and we believe that all of the officers have certainly saved lives by removing impaired drivers from California’s roads.”
A big thank you to Officer Hoang for his continued dedication to keeping our community safe!
