(Nashville, TN)—Assistant District Attorney Kyle Anderson has received the Tennessee Excellence Award from Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) for his work on DUI cases. The award is given to the top regional prosecutor who demonstrates outstanding commitment to enforcing DUI law and for supporting local volunteers’ victim-advocacy efforts. During the annual Night of Remembrance ceremony in Nashville on December 3, the organization cited Anderson’s consideration of victims and their families and his dedication to their concerns as reasons for the recognition.
Anderson, a former metro police officer, leads the D.A.’s Vehicular Crimes Unit, which operates under a grant from the Governor’s Highway Safety Oﬃce. The unit consists of a dedicated team of prosecutors whose work has helped cut in half the number of deaths caused by impaired drivers in Davidson County.
District Attorney Glenn Funk said he is proud to have Anderson and his team leading efforts to help make Davidson County roads safe and alcohol free.
This holiday season, the D.A.’s Office advises motorists in Davidson County to remember the devastation that DUI and impaired driving causes victims and their families.
