Last week, Officer Derek Andrews attended the Wisconsin Traffic Safety Officers Association annual conference at the Tundra Lodge in Green Bay. At the conference, Officer Andrews who is a certified Drug Recognition Expert received an award for Outstanding Performance as a DRE in 2017. Officer Andrews, who is assigned to 3rd shift patrol is recognized by his supervisors and peers for his efforts in removing drivers impaired by alcohol and drugs from our roadways. In addition to leading the department in impaired driving arrests, he was recognized for educating other area department commanders in the importance of the DRE Program, convincing them to send officers to be certified in the 2018 DRE School. He also presented a program for Probation/Parole Agents from Kenosha, Racine, and Walworth counties on what to look for and how to stay safe while doing searches, due to the increase of dangerous opioids such and Fentanyl and Carfentanyl. Congratulations Officer Andrews and keep up the good work!
