Farmington Police Department’s Traffic Division was recently recognized for their outstanding efforts with DWI enforcement during the annual Law Enforcement Coordinators’ Symposium. The event took place July 29 – 30 at the Sandia Resort in Albuquerque and was attended by more than 225 representatives from New Mexico law enforcement agencies that participated in ENDDWI, BKLUP, STEP, CIOT and 100 Days and Nights of Summer. The LECS provides law enforcement with education, trend analysis and best practice methods for advancing the New Mexico Department of Transportation’s Traffic Safety Division programs. Law enforcement experts from around the country presented on various topics, including DWI enforcement, distracted driving prevention, effects of alcohol and marijuana, legal updates and occupational protection. A breath alcohol testing instrument was awarded to the Farmington Police Department for their outstanding efforts with DWI enforcement. Sergeant Dave Karst accepted the award on behalf of the department. The unit was donated by Chris Stoddard with Draeger.
