Maplewood Police officers honored

Three Maplewood Police Officers were among the thirty-six law enforcement and public safety officials honored for their efforts to prevent drunken driving. The 2005 Ramsey-Washington MADD Law Enforcement Recognition Banquet was held Oct. 23 at Lutheran Church of Peace in Maplewood. It was mentioned that 90% of DUI offenders are changed after hearing the memorable impact speakers, but 10 % could care less and will re-offend. Mrs. Minnesota Angela Haseman, a police officer making it her platform to educate people about the effects of drunk driving and encouraging making right, life-saving choices, was the guest speaker reiterating her thanks and appreciation for taking the extra effort and time it takes to get drunk drivers off the road.

Mike Shortreed, who nominated them, and Deb Halton - State Victim Advocate. Officer Scott Nye was unable to attend.
