Sullivan named one of New York’s top cops

W ashington County Sheriff Jeff Murphy reports that Deputy Robert Sullivan was recently named one of New York’s “top cops,” recognizing excellence in his abilities enforcing drunk driving laws in the state.

The award was presented by the New York State Stop-DWI Foundation, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee at a ceremony in Schenectady on Nov. 13.Deputy Sullivan was among 17 Officers from around the state who were recognized for their efforts in reducing drunk driving related accidents and injuries.

Sullivan , who is assigned to the Salem Substation and works the overnight shift, dedicates many hours both compensated and uncompensated in the education of young drivers as to the consequences of drinking and driving. The deputy lost his younger brother to an alcohol-related accident and shares that story with high school aged drivers regularly during the year. He also conducts prom drills with all the schools within the county and is regularly requested because his personal story is so moving and well received by the students.

According to a press release on the award, Murphy said Sullivan is an active law enforcement officer making numerous DWI arrests each year. His abilities and professionalism as an instructor are evidenced by the long lines of children and young adults for his presentations each year at the County Fair. He is also a volunteer high school basketball coach and is a shining example of professionalism within his community and the county.

“I am extremely proud that Bobby Sullivan received this prestigious and well-deserved award for his tireless efforts in making our county a safer place,” said Murphy.
