Officers in St. Joseph County awarded for their DUI work


Officers in St. Joseph County are pretty good at catching drunk drivers.  At least the State of Indiana seems to think so.

Wednesday morning many of those officers were awarded for their performance.  The Indiana Governor's Council named them the top DUI task force.

Police Departments from St. Joseph County, South Bend, Lakeville, Walkerton, New Carlisle and Notre Dame were recognized.

"We've seen the DUI numbers go down which to me is encouraging because that means that the public is aware of what's going on and they know the officers are out there," says Lance Grubbs the Northeast Law Enforcement Liaison.

Each department received a plaque and $8,000 to purchase traffic equipment.  The task force is also growing with departments from Roseland and North Liberty have been added.
