South Pasadena Police Officers Tyler Borrello and Tim Kim were honored Wednesday at the Los Angeles County Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) Awards for making numerous drunken driving arrests last year in the City of South Pasadena.

The officers each made 31 arrests of suspected drunk drivers in 2018.

The mission of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) is to end drunk driving, help fight drugged driving, support the victims of these violent crimes, and prevent underage drinking.

Founded in 1980 by a mother whose daughter was killed by a drunk driver, MADD is the nation’s largest nonprofit working to end drunk driving, help fight drugged driving, support the victims of these violent crimes and prevent underage drinking.

MADD has provided supportive services to nearly one million drunk and drugged driving victims and survivors at no charge through local victim advocates and the 24-Hour Victim Help Line 1-877-MADD-HELP.
