Working the night shift, Police Officer Al Halstead says modestly, had
a lot to do with it.

But the Orange County Chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving says it was "exemplary service" in the past year that led to his arrest of 41 drivers who were under the influence of alcohol.

Because of his achievement, the group honored Halstead at a recent City Council meeting, presenting him with one of its annual Deuce Awards for law enforcement.

Vicki Maciha, victim advocate for the local chapter, praised Halstead for "taking the offensive" against drunk drivers.

Halstead, 41, is a 16-year veteran of the La Palma Police Department.
