Grundy County Sheriff Ken Briley honors four Grundy County deputies fro their efforts at impaired driver enforcement during the Oct. 8 regular meeting of the Grundy County Board.

Four Grundy County Sheriff’s deputies have been honored for their efforts in keeping drunken and impaired drivers off the roads.

Each year, the Alliance Against Intoxicated Motorists recognizes police officers for their outstanding and progressive enforcement for impaired driving.

In Grundy County, AAIM recognized the efforts of deputies Aaron Cory, Matthew Wojciechowski, Michael Hetelle and Greg Butterfield.

Sheriff Ken Briley said these four deputies account for more than 60% of impaired driving arrests throughout the year by the sheriff’s department, and have been proactive in planning and enforcement efforts.

“These sheriff deputies have committed themselves to aggressive traffic enforcement,” Briley told members of the Grundy County Board on Oct. 8. “These efforts have resulted in a substantial increase in impaired driving arrests, over 21% from the previous 12 months.”

Briley said that injuries and fatalities as a result of an impaired drivers are completely preventable.

“We are doing our part to enforce a no-tolerance platform for drunken or impaired driving,” Briley said.
