Top Cops Honored by AAIM


2015 TOP DEPARTMENTS and TOP COPS AAIM recognizes Illinois “Top Cops” at our annual Benefit.  These police officers have demonstrated a proven commitment to traffic safety in the fight against impaired driving.

AAIM has been conducting a DUI survey from municipal and county police departments across the state since 1990.  By publicly recognizing the achievement of the top departments and individual officers, we reward those currently doing a good job and inspire others to increase their efforts as well.

The survey provides a valuable service by encouraging citizens to compare the DUI enforcement record of their local police department with that of other communities.  As a result, public pressure can be applied, where needed, to make DUI enforcement a priority.


​Top officers receiving awards for 2015 are:

​​Trooper Eric David — ISP District Chicago / 310 Arrests

Officer Timothy Walter — Chicago PD District 19 / 232 Arrests
