Sergeant Tom Taylor and Lieutenant Dave Pelto

Town of Vienna Police Sergeant Tom Taylor has been honored — for a third time — for  his enforcement efforts against drunk and impaired drivers.

The award was presented by the Virginia Alcohol Safety  Action Program (V.A.S.A.P.) in Fairfax County and Mothers Against Drunk Driving (M.A.D.D.) at the annual awards ceremony  at the Tysons Westpark Hotel in McLean.

Sergeant Taylor spent numerous hours detecting, investigating and  prosecuting impaired drivers in 2011. As the result of a Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles grant, targeted D.W.I. enforcement took place within the Town of Vienna and resulted in additional arrests.

Sergeant Taylor is also an Intoxilyzer Operator for the Commonwealth of Virginia The Intoxilyzer, which analyzes the breath of suspected violators to determine their blood-alcohol content, is strategically located in the Vienna area by the Commonwealth of Virginia. Sergeant Taylor and other Intoxilyzer operators throughout Virginia continually perform blood alcohol tests at Vienna Police Headquarters.
