PORT CHESTER, N.Y. - The Port Chester Police Department has been honored as one of the top municipalities in the state to help deter and prevent drunk and impaired driving in the village.
On Friday, the Port Chester Police Department was honored with a Recognition of Excellence award, which was presented by the New York Stop-DWI-Mother’s Against Drunk Driving organization and Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Traffic Safety Committee.
Port Chester was one of just three departments throughout the entire state to earn the distinction, which cited their “outstanding efforts in deterring impaired driving in the village.”
Additionally, Port Chester Police Officer Jason Behar earned individual honors, being named as the top DWI enforcement officer in both the mid-Hudson Valley and New York State.
In a Facebook post celebrating the statewide honors, the department told Port Chester to “rest assured, we continue to strive to make our community safer, to the best of our ability.”
