Grove City Division of Police officer Brandon Judd was awarded the Central Ohio Chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) 2022 TOP COP Award.

MADD recognizes officers who go above and beyond to curb impaired driving in their communities, with an award of excellence. The award goes to those who continually display a commitment to reducing impaired driving through enforcement, education, and prevention.

This is Judd’s fourth MADD Award of excellence and second TOP Cop Award.

“We are extremely proud of Officer Judd,” said Police Chief Richard Fambro. “His commitment to reducing the number of impaired drivers on our roadways increases the safety of our community.”

Judd began his law enforcement career in 2011 after a family member was killed by an impaired driver. His career is dedicated to apprehending impaired drivers with the thought that each traffic stop could save a life.

Judd’s drive and peer training have lead to success in OVI detection and arrests.

“We are continually impressed with Officer Judd’s personal efforts and pledge to keep Grove City families safe,” said Grove City Mayor Richard “Ike” Stage. “His work ethic and drive are evident throughout all aspects of his law enforcement career.”

Judd was honored as Grove City Division of Police Officer of the Year twice, is a member of the Division’s Strategic Response team and a field training officer. Over the last 12 months, Judd issued 142 OVI arrests.
