GRPD’s Nelson scores DWI hat trick

Grand Rapids Police Officer Jeremy Nelson was recently honored with the Hat Trick Award by the Minnesota Department of Public Safety, Office of Traffic Safety (OTS). Nelson made three drunk driving arrests in one shift. “Because of the dedication of Officer Nelson and law enforcement officers throughout the state we continue to reduce deaths and serious injuries as a result of motor vehicle crashes,” said Frank Scherf, OTS law enforcement liaison. “The public is safer today because of the Toward Zero Death enforcement efforts of the Office of Traffic Safety, but it could not happen without the cooperation of law enforcement agencies like the Grand Rapids Police Department and officers like Officer Nelson.” Drunk driving enforcement is a priority for the Grand Rapids Police Department. “The Grand Rapids Police Department has made intense efforts to reduce the number of motorists choosing to drink and drive,” said Grand Rapids Police Chief Jim Denny. “Our goal is to create a culture for which traffic fatalities and serious injuries are no longer acceptable. Officer Nelson’s arrests of three individuals in one evening for DWI are a testament to his dedication and commitment to saving lives in Itasca County. I am very proud of his achievement and am thankful that he chooses to be a Grand Rapids Police Officer.”
