Each year in the U.S., more than 10,000 people are killed and another 345,000 are injured in drunk driving crashes. In Nebraska, 71 people were killed in 2017 in alcohol related crashes. The men and women working throughout our state in the criminal justice arena are paving the way to a safer state and a future with No More Victims.

Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) Nebraska will be honoring 27 outstanding heroes during our Annual Hero Awards Event. We are excited to recognize those in law enforcement, probation, prosecution and MADD volunteers, all of whom have gone above and beyond throughout the last year to keep Nebraskans safe from the dangers of impaired driving and underage drinking.

The award winners were selected by committee for their strong dedication to keeping Nebraska safe from the dangers of impaired driving and underage drinking, either through direct law enforcement, prosecution, probation or education and awareness. These honorees are among the best of our state and will be honored for the outstanding working during the 2019 year.
