Sheriff Tim Leslie is proud to announce that Dakota County Deputy Michael Vai was named to the 2017 DWI All-Star Team in a pre-game ceremony at Target Field on July 18, 2017. This year the team is comprised of 43 law enforcement officers and prosecutors throughout Minnesota who demonstrated outstanding effort in the fight against drunk driving.
All too often we hear about innocent lives being taken by individuals who make the poor decision to drive after drinking. Deputy Vai arrested 47 individuals for drunk driving in 2016 alone. Sheriff Leslie praised his efforts, and those of all law enforcement officers, to make our communities safer by taking drunk drivers off the road. He said he is proud to partner with the Office of Traffic Safety in the Towards Zero Deaths initiative in this cooperative effort.
