Loudoun Deputy Recognized for Efforts in Fight Against Impaired Driving

A Loudoun County Sheriff’s Deputy was recently recognized for her efforts in the fight against impaired driving.

Deputy Specialist Katie Baldwin 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.

Baldwin, a five-year veteran of the Sheriff’s Office Patrol Division, removed 22 impaired drivers from Loudoun’s roadways during the past year.

Loudoun Sheriff Steve Simpson said the efforts of Baldwin 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.
