Trooper James Tompkins of the Michigan State Police Lakeview Post received the MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) award for “Outstanding Trooper,” at a ceremony held at the Walter P. Chrysler Museum in Auburn Hills, on September 23.

MSP Lt. Colonel Richard Arnold, who presented the award to Tpr. Tompkins, remarked that Tpr. Tompkins has a strong passion for taking drunk drivers off the streets, and has led the Lakeview Post in arrests for the past four years. Tpr. Tompkins again led the Lakeview Post with 39 arrests for drunk driving.

According the 2014 MSP Drunk Driving Audit, there were 134 alcohol involved crashes, and 266 OWI arrests, in the three counties that make up the Lakeview Post area—Montcalm, Gratiot, and Ionia.

“Drunk and impaired driving remains a serious threat, and a zero tolerance approach will continue to be taken by Tpr. Tompkins and his colleagues,” commented F/Lt. Kevin Sweeney, Lakeview Post Commander.

MADD is in its 35 year of combating drunk driving, fighting drugged driving, and supporting the victims of these crimes.
