NASHVILLE --- Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) recently honored four Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency wildlife officers during the 2017 Statewide Night of Remembrance and Awards Ceremony.

TWRA wildlife officers Greg Julian, Josh Landrum, and Jeff Roberson were honored by MADD Tennessee for their efforts on removing boating under the influence (BUI) operators from Tennessee waterways thus enhancing safety and saving lives.

Julian serves in Anderson County, Landrum in Davidson County, and Roberson in Knox County.

In addition, TWRA Boating Investigator Capt. Matt Majors also received a special honor. He received the 2017 Middle Tennessee Outstanding Service Award.

            This year’s annual event was held at the Millennium Maxwell House Hotel in Nashville. Hosted by MADD Tennessee, it honors and remembers victims of substance impaired driving and underage drinking and to recognize law enforcement heroes for their commitment to protecting Tennesseans from these crimes.  The organization works with victims from both DUI and BUI incidents.
