Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants (DUII) is a major reason for road accidents and road deaths in Oregon each year. Although the data is pointing in the right direction, we still need to work towards doing better. Many of us have been impacted by the choices of impaired drivers. If you haven’t, then hopefully you will understand how important this enforcement is to the HRPD and our community.
Last week the Oregon Multi-Disciplinary Training Task Force, through nomination from the Hood River County District Attorney’s Office, awarded Officer Emelike Delancy the DUII Officer of the year award at their annual conference. What makes this award even more impressive is that most recipients who get this award are on DUII enforcement teams where this is their primary duty. Officer Delancy is not on a DUII team and is a regular Patrol Officer with many duties. Officer Delancy was recognized for being the most active Officer/Deputy/Trooper in DUII enforcement in the Columbia River Gorge. Officer Delancy is also a DRE which gives him additional training and expertise in drugs that impair driving.
The Hood River Police Department is very honored to have Officer Delancy receive this award. Officer Delancy comes to work everyday with a goal of keeping residents and visitors of Hood River safe. In receiving this award, Officer Delancy becomes the first Officer in the Department to ever receive this award. Officer Delancy exemplifies the core values that our Department has adopted. #HONOR #EXCELLENCE #INTEGRITY
Thank you Officer Delancy!
