River Forest Police Officers Recognized by Alliance Against Intoxicated Motorists (AAIM)

August, 1, 2018

Each year during July, the Alliance Against Intoxicated Motorists (AAIM) recognizes specific law enforcement officers as Top Cops in exceptional DUI enforcement. This year, River Forest police officers Daniel Szczesny, Max Ostrowski, and Corporal Peter Eberling were awarded a Certificate of Appreciation in recognition of these life-saving efforts. Their continued educational and enforcement are significant deterrents to impaired driving.

The Mission of the Alliance Against Intoxicated Motorists (AAIM) is to prevent deaths and injuries caused by intoxicated or distracted motorists and to assist impaired driving crash victims and their families in Illinois. AAIM is an Illinois-only citizen activist group founded in 1982 by victims of drunk driving. Prevention, victim advocacy, and legislation encompass the mission of AAIM, a recognized Illinois expert on these issues.

According to Chief James O’Shea, “traffic safety and community safety go hand-in-hand, the Village and police department are honored to have our officers’ efforts recognized by AAIM. Officers Szczesny, Ostrowski, and Corporal Eberling are valued members of the organization and are known by the community as dedicated and well-rounded public servants.”

Driving is a privilege, not a right, granted by society to those members who comply with the rules established for the good of all. The River Forest Police Department works in collaboration with the community to improve safety for all motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists who travel in or through the Village on a daily basis.
