Fargo-Moorhead (WDAY TV) - State and county law officers were showered with awards and honors today. The Safe Communities Coalition of the Red River Valley honored them for enforcement in the areas of DUI, Speed, Seat Belt, Child Restraint and Underage Drinking.

Deputies, police officers and state troopers from both sides of the river received certificates for achieving numbers that are generating big results, like fewer accidents resulting in death. There was one DUI death in Cass County last year, and zero alcohol related deaths in Clay.

Robyn Litke Sall – Safe Communities Coalition: “This is not about numbers, but quality; making good arrests with safety in mind and not numbers in mind, for sure.”

Lynn Mickelson, who lost his daughter and her family to a drunk driver, was also recognized for his efforts on DUI education.
