SHOUT OUT: A Ramsey patrolman will be among several law enforcement officers honored by the New Jersey Chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving for “outstanding enforcement of the state’s Driving While Intoxicated laws.”
His superiors nominated Patrolman James “Scott” Peterson for the honor at the Law Enforcement Recognition breakfast scheduled for June 11 at Middlesex County College in Edison.
Peterson will be recognized for “outstanding and distinguished service to [the] community” in 2013 for “saving lives by preventing crashes.”
The three-year veteran led the department last year with 14 self-initiated DWI arrests, Police Chief Bryan Gurney said.
“It is nice to see a young officer develop and understand the importance of enforcing the DWI laws,” Gurney said. “He has made the borough of Ramsey a safer community.”
