Chula Vista Police Officer Alicia Chudy earned the “California State MADD Hero Award” by arresting 85 alleged drunk drivers in 2010. She also coordinated over 30 DUI operations, wrote and secured an anti-drunken driving grant to continue Chula Vista’s prevention operations, and she is credited with training other officers to score more DUI arrests. A total of 650 drivers suspected of drunk driving were arrested last year in Chula Vista alone.
