Deputy Recognized for Removing 38 Impaired Drivers from Roadways in 2009

A Loudoun County Sheriff’s Deputy was recognized December 11 for his efforts in the fight against impaired driving. Deputy Jason Totaro was among several law enforcement officers from the region recognized by the Washington Regional Alcohol Program (WRAP) for their outstanding commitment in the fight against drunk driving.

Totaro, a four-year veteran of the Sheriff’s Office, removed 38 impaired drivers from Loudoun’s roadways in 2009. Loudoun Sheriff Steve Simpson said the efforts of Totaro and the entire agency sends a clear message to impaired motorists, “if you drink and drive, we’re going to catch you.”

The annual event is in part a kick-off campaign for the Holiday SoberRide Program and also recognizes members of law enforcement for their efforts in impaired driving prevention. Founded in 1982, WRAP, is an award winning, public-private partnership working to prevent drunk driving and underage drinking in the Washington-metropolitan area.

The Master of Ceremonies was News 4’s Lyndsay Czarniak.
