DUI Enforcement Recognition – On Thursday, December 10, 2015, the Ocean County Traffic Safety Officer’s Association held their annual awards ceremony. During the ceremony, Officer Dimitri Tsarnas and Lieutenant Michael DiBella were provided certificates of recognition for their diligent efforts to deter, detect and enforce the laws related to DUI. Officer Tsarnas is a certified drug recognition expert (DRE) and has been recognized throughout his career as one of the most knowledgeable and skilled officers in the state due to his DUI and drug enforcement efforts as a uniformed patrol officer. Officer Tsarnas, under a shared-services agreement, also assists other municipalities in Ocean County as a DRE. Lieutenant Michael DiBella serves as the Patrol Division Commander for the Lacey Township Police Department and has consistently demonstrated his commitment to DUI enforcement.
