Officer Honored With DWI Recognition Award

Written by Staff Report
SARATOGA SPRINGS —Saratoga Springs Police Officer Mark Leffler was awarded a 2013 Recognition Award from the New York State STOP-DWI Foundation and Mothers Against Drunk Driving New York State. Officer Leffler was one of only 26 individuals and agencies selected to receive this award for 2013. He recently attended a driving while impaired by drugs training course and has already been involved in two investigations of individuals suspected of driving while under the influence of drugs. He has made over 190 DWI arrests over the past three years including 75 arrests for DWI in 2012. “Even though Officer Leffler is required to help police the downtown area on the midnight shift and respond to other calls for service, he still manages to actively enforce the driving while intoxicated laws. His commitment to taking drunk drivers off the road has undoubtedly saved lives,” Chief of Police Greg Veitch said. Commissioner Christian Mathiesen added, “This award is an honor for Officer Leffler. He is to be commended for his dedication to keeping the city safe from the danger posed by those who choose to drink and drive.” Officer Leffler received his award at the annual awards ceremony hosted by the New York State STOP-DWI Foundation and MADD-NY at Mallozzi’s Restaurant in Schenectady on Tuesday, November 12.
