Governor Awards Sweetwater County Sheriff’s Office for Sobriety Program


ROCK SPRINGS — Governor Matt Mead recently presented a special Leadership Award to Sheriff Mike Lowell and the Sweetwater County Sheriff’s Office.

The award is from the Governor’s Council on Impaired Driving (GCID) and recognizes the Sweetwater County Sheriff’s Office “leadership and determined efforts” in being the first county in Wyoming to implement the 24/7 Sobriety Program.

24/7 Sobriety is a nationally acclaimed program engaged in saving lives by reducing incidents of impaired driving by repeat DUI offenders.
