Queen Creek Police Department Motor Officer Evan Storch recently received the Mothers Against Drunk Driving-Honoring Heroes award for 2022.
Storch has been with the department for a year and has been instrumental in creating and implementing the impaired driver program at the Queen Creek Police Department. His dedication and passion toward keeping local streets safe and helping the department with its Drive to Arrive campaign were highlighted when honored by MADD.
The Drive to Arrive program is this year's town resolution to focus on safe driving. Queen Creek police are asking drivers to slow down, avoid distractions and remember the following tips: Allow ample time for travel to avoid aggressive driving and speeding; turn phone to "do not disturb" or keep it in your purse/bag while driving; slow down; stop on red and use common courtesy.
"Our goal is to make drivers safe, whether they're residents or just driving through town," Queen Creek Police Chief Randy Brice said. "That's why our Drive to Arrive campaign has been our focus to begin with. Traffic has been of the most concern to residents and this campaign focuses on keeping people safe on the roads."
