Burbank recognized for DWI stops

Red Wing Police Officer Jeff Burbank was recently named to the 2013 Department of Public Safety Office of Traffic Safety DWI Enforcer All-Star team. In 2012, Burbank arrested 47 drunk drivers, and the award recognizes his efforts to prevent alcohol-related crashes. He was recognized during a presentation at Target Field Thursday.

Burbank is one of 34 Minnesota law enforcement officers and prosecutors recognized. All-stars were selected based on their total number of DWI arrests made in 2012.

"Officer Burbank's effort to arrest drunk drivers goes a long way toward keeping our roads safe and we are proud of his service," Red Wing Chief Roger Pohlman said.
