Justice Institute of BC and ICBC honour 2013 Alexa’s Team Members

 

Surrey, BC / April 7, 2014 – On Wednesday, April 9th, the Justice Institute of BC and ICBC will join the family of Alexa’ Middelaer to honour 134 members of the 2013 Alexa’s Team from the Lower Mainland for their outstanding work removing impaired drivers from the streets and highways of our communities.

These officers have processed more than 50,000 impaired driving charges and penalties over the past five years in BC. They have helped to achieve the recently announced 52 per cent reduction in deaths caused by drinking and driving since September 2010 when the BC government introduced new impaired driving legislation.

Formed in 2008, Alexa’s Team has grown from 26 members to over 1,321 new and returning RCMP and Municipal police officers from all corners of the province.
