Drawings were held for qualified agencies to win law enforcement equipment, including two fully equipped police vehicles to be used specifically for DUI enforcement.
The Charleston County Sheriff's Office picked up an Agency of the Year award for it's 162 DUI arrests – the most DUI arrests made by an agency of it's size (100 or more officers) in South Carolina in 2013.
