A detective with the Fresno Police Department’s traffic bureau was recognized by Mothers Against Drunk Driving for his efforts in helping DUI victims and their families.
Detective Brain Hance received MADD’s highest award given to law enforcement officers during a ceremony recognizing officers from all across the state June 11 in San Diego, said Sgt. Tony Bustos. The MADD Hero Award was given to Hance for his “exceptional work in the investigation of fatal DUI collisions.”
Hance is a responder to all fatal traffic collisions in the city of Fresno, day or night, said Bustos. Hance works closely with the district attorney’s and coroner’s offices and has received letters from the family of DUI victims, thanking him for his compassion during his investigations, and his ability to bring closure to DUI victims and their families.
