Poughkeepsie…The Dutchess County STOP-DWI Planning Board honored sixteen law enforcement officers today at the 18th Annual Dutchess County STOP-DWI Program’s Law Enforcement Awards Luncheon held at Villa Borghese restaurant in the Town of Wappinger.

“The annual STOP-DWI Program Law Enforcement Awards ceremony helps to increase public awareness regarding coordinated STOP-DWI programming and all of the focused enforcement efforts within Dutchess County,” said Dutchess County Executive Marcus J. Molinaro. “It is also a special opportunity to honor and thank all those involved in the STOP-DWI mission for their hard work and persistence.”

Officers from throughout Dutchess County were honored for their commitment and contributions to the STOP-DWI Program’s mission. Each officer was honored for their strong enforcement efforts in the detection and apprehension of impaired drivers.
