FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Alexa’s team recipients were honored today in Prince George as well as other parts of the province.
Alexa’s team is a program that recognizes RCMP as well as municipal officers in B.C. that make an extraordinary contribution to reducing the number of drivers driving drunk or impaired by drugs.
In order to be nominated, an officer has to remove at least 12 drivers that were affected by alcohol or drugs from either a criminal code investigation, or a 90-day immediate roadside prohibition in the previous year.
The program started in 2008 and since then, 71,300 penalties have been processed for drugs or alcohol use while driving.
All-Star members are officers that have taken 34 or more criminally impaired drivers off the road in 2015.
