DUI award winners on steps of Capitol in Tallahassee

For the tenth consecutive year, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) officially recognized Florida law enforcement officers who arrested 100 or more drunk drivers during the previous calendar year.

This special recognition took place on Monday, March 24, 2003, during a news conference on the steps of the Old Capitol building in Tallahassee, and later at an awards luncheon at the Tallahassee-Leon County Civic Center. Besides the beautiful award given to each recipient by MADD at the awards luncheon, each trooper was presented with a special "100 Club" award by Colonel Christopher A. Knight during a presentation held later at the FHP Training Academy. The 20 troopers honored by MADD and the Florida Highway Patrol arrested a total of 2,682 drunk drivers last year.

The highlight of the MADD awards ceremony was the presentation of the Patrol's highest DUI award, the Hurd-Smith Award. This year's Hurd-Smith Award winner was Trooper Anthony Palese with 236 DUI arrests! This special award honors Trooper Kimberly Hurd and Trooper Robbie Smith, who were both tragically killed by drunk drivers in separate incidents.
