HERKIMER, N.Y. -- Each year, law enforcement were recognized for the role they play for keeping our streets and roadways safe to drive on.
During the Herkimer County STOP DWI program's 11th Law Enforcement Recognition Breakfast, those who work to keep the streets safe were honored Thursday morning.
The coordinator for the impaired driving program in Oneida County says there's an obstacle for these officers that could be on the horizon.
“There's two separate issues there's the issue of legalizing a recreational drug and how adults use that recreational drug, but then it opens and exposes the driving aspect of people using that recreational drug the way they use alcohol,” said Joe Passalacqua, the impaired driving coordinator.
The law enforcement officers recognized are:
Officer Donald Richards
Officer Matthew Mills
Officer Alexander Palmer
Officer Thomas (Brennan) Riolo
Officer Timothy Schloicka
Officer Jonathon Reska
Officer Ryan Cornish
Officer Edwin Marrero
Deputy Sheriff Michael Kerr
Trooper Jasmin Veiz
