My last post was about the financial incentives for making more DUI arrests. The following recent (July 13) news story reflects the career benefits:
County Sheriff’s Deputy Inducted into DUI Club
A Neshoba County sheriff’s deputy has been inducted into the Mississippi 100 DUI Club. Deputy Sheriff Vince Carter was recognized along with 37 other officers across the state at a luncheon sponsored by the Mississippi Department of Public Safety in Jackson
The officers were honored for writing 100 DUI citations or more during 2004
A Louisville native, Carter has been employed at the sheriff’s office for about six years where he has written more than 700 DUI citations.
This is the second time he has received the statewide induction
"It’s a great feeling to know that I’ve been inducted twice into the club," Carter said.
I guess I’d feel better about this story if the standard wasn’t 100 citations, but rather 100 convictions……
