Castle Rock Police Officer Kerry Lewis honored by MADD

Public servant focuses on proper safety restraints

Posted

In a recent ceremony, the Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) organization recognized Castle Rock Police Officer Kerry Lewis for Outstanding Individual Dedication to Occupant Protection.

Lewis was honored during the MADD Colorado banquet held at the Denver Aquarium on Sept. 29.

According to MADD, the annual award presented to Lewis is in recognition of a law enforcement officer who understands that the majority of people killed in impaired driving crashes are unrestrained and has shown outstanding commitment to education, awareness, and enforcement of safety belt laws and child passenger safety.

Lewis is currently serving as a school resource officer at Mesa Middle School in Castle Rock. However, MADD said Lewis goes beyond his duties at the school and initiates traffic stops, too. Since he joined the Castle Rock department in 2007, Lewis has worked more than 300 overtime hours doing seatbelt enforcement, sacrificing his personal time off.

Lewis uses his platform in the schools to inform future drivers of the dangers of unrestrained driving. He talks to students about these dangers as a part of his daily routine, and his dedication to traffic enforcement shows the students that safety is his top priority. He teaches a course at the middle school, and the kids he works with could be safer drivers because of him.
