HOLBROOK, AZ- (October 1, 2013) – Getting impaired drivers off the street makes roadways and neighborhoods safer, but the act of taking intoxicated individuals off the road can be a dangerous one for the law enforcement officers who have to deal with them. Mothers Against Drunk Drivers Arizona (MADD AZ) recently honored law enforcement officers statewide who put their personal safety at risk every time they deal with an impaired driver, and a deputy with the Navajo County Sheriff's Office was one of those named a recipient of the 2013 DUI Law Enforcement Officer of the Year Award.

Navajo County Sheriff's Deputy Asher Davis was honored with the award last week at the MADD DUI Law Enforcement Recognition Awards in Phoenix by MADD AZ founder Stan Marks. Davis, who has worked for the Sheriff's Office for more than five years, made numerous DUI arrests, conducted more than 20 Drug Recognition Evaluations (DRE), and more than 46 blood draws in the past year while assisting local police agencies in detecting impaired drivers.

“Receiving this award is really humbling,” said Davis. “I enjoy giving back to the community where I grew up. I enjoy serving all citizens, providing a safe environment and ultimately providing help to those in need.

Davis lives in the Show Low area and is a graduate of Show Low High School. He received his associates degree in general studies from Northland Pioneer College in 2009. Davis is a Certified Drug Recognition Expert, Qualified Law Enforcement, and holds a number of certifications related to DUI enforcement. He is a member of the local Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Team and the White Mountain DUI Task Force.

“Deputy Davis' recognition is well earned,” said Navajo County Sheriff KC Clark. “It's always inspiring to watch these officers who are working to protect the communities where they grew up. It's a gratifying cycle for them to protect and care for the very people – the teachers, the neighbors, the families – who once took care of them.
