San Ramon Officer Honored For Work to Help Eliminate Drunk Driving

Corporal Jeff Hahn of the San Ramon Police Department was honored by Mothers Against Drunk Driving on Saturday.

Individuals, agencies and organizations from across the state were honored Saturday by Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) California for their work and dedication to eliminate drunk driving. 

About 170 individuals were honored, including San Ramon corporal Jeff Hahn.

The 14th annual MADD California Statewide Law Enforcement and Community Recognition event — “Celebrate California Heroes” — was held on June 2, 2012, at the Hyatt Regency Sacramento. 

During the event, MADD National President Jan Withers recognized law enforcement officials, government agencies and community advocates from throughout the state, who have gone beyond the call of duty to combat drunk driving, educate the public on the effects of this violent crime and who have done their part in maintaining safer roadways and communities. 

More than 600 people were in attendance from 53 of California’s 58 counties, and awards are given to more than 170 individual officers and their departments. 

“The officers recognized at this event are the top officers in the state for DUI Enforcement. Some of them have personal stories; perhaps they are even victims themselves. These officers, along with the other award recipients, have seen the tragedies and devastation that drunk driving crashes have caused and they have set out to help protect the community from that devastation. For that, we honor them today,”  said Silas Miers, MADD California Law Enforcement Program Specialist.

The MADD California Statewide Law Enforcement and Community Recognition event is not just an awards ceremony; it is a powerful medium acknowledging the courage and strength of the members of our community who stand up every day to make our roads safer. Funding for this recognition program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

to answer Mike's question "Yes" just like a real estate sale person wins an awrd for selling the most houses, officers are awarded when they arrest the most offenders. kind of makes sense.

I find it apprehensible that anyone would question something so positive as police officers, or anyone being honored for doing good. Isn't there already enough to complain about? Geeezzz. They weren't just doing their job, Mike, they went beyond the call of duty and were...dedicated. That is what separates those who just do their job from those who actually make a difference.

Sounds like "Mike S" has never received any special recognition at his work. That's ok, maybe he goes in and gives only what his employer asks of him and that's perfectly fine. Some people actually enjoy their jobs and find reason to go above and beyond in doing it and as such are honored and singled out for that hard work. Personally I'm ecstatic that the officer mentioned in the article worked EXTRA hard in getting drunk drivers off the street as it makes my family and those I love, not to mention "Mike S" safer. The officer probably got a piece of paper or a plaque for his efforts not to mention a short article here. I see no problem with it. Keep doing the minimum at your work, "Mike S." We will continue to thank those that do more. Thank you Officer Hahn!
