Austin Police Sgt. Jeff McCormack and Mower County prosecutor Aaron Jones were recognized during the Minnesota Twins pre-game activities at Target Field, along with 37 other law enforcement officers and prosecutors as part of the DWI Enforcer All-Stars Thursday evening.
McCormack made 67 DWI arrests in 2014.
“While alcohol is the top factor in Minnesota traffic fatalities, most motorists don’t drive impaired,” Donna Berger, Office of Traffic Safety director said in a press release. “More drivers in Minnesota are committed to finding a sober ride, and for those who don’t, we’re grateful to the All-Stars and all of law enforcement for protecting our safety.”
