Connecticut chapter of MADD honors Waterford Police Chief
On Wednesday, MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Drivers) recognized Waterford Police Department’s efforts to fight against drunk driving at a ceremony which was held in New Haven.
Yesterday in New Haven, Waterford Police Chief Murray Pendleton was honored as a “Top Cop” by the Connecticut chapter of MADD at its annual Law Enforcement Recognition Ceremony. He was also the keynote speaker at the event.
In Waterford, Pendleton started his career in 1967 and 42 years of dedication to traffic safety initiatives in which DUI, speeding, seat belt enforcement and more recently, distracted driving are included. His dedication is what he believes earned him the Top Cop award.
The number of Police Officers and State Troopers who attended the event was more than 350. Waterford Police Officer Maffeo and Sgt. Balestracci who were recognized for the efforts in fighting against DUI were also present at the event.
