An Oregon State Police trooper assigned to the Central Point Area Command office was recognized for his DUII enforcement efforts at the 2012 annual DUII Multi-Disciplinary Impaired Driving Training Conference held April 20 and 21 in Canyonville. The Oregon DUII Multi-Disciplinary Training Task Force presented their annual awards of excellence to various organizations, groups, and individuals who made a significant contribution to deterring impaired driving in Oregon during 2011.
 
One of the awards was presented to an officer or supervisor active in DUII enforcement or the supervision of an active/innovative DUII enforcement team. The recipient is usually someone who is active in DUII enforcement or was instrumental in establishing, promoting, or supervising a unique or effective DUII enforcement program. The "DUII Enforcement Officer-of-the-Year" award is presented to a sworn police officer from a city police department, county sheriff's office, and the Oregon State Police (OSP).
 
The Oregon State Police "DUII Enforcement Officer-of-the-Year" award was presented to Trooper Adam Walport from the Central Point Area Command office. Walport, age 28, joined the department December 2007, and was responsible for 30 percent of all DUII arrests reported by the Central Point Area Command office. The local District Attorney office praised Walport for his preparation, demeanor and knowledge in court as key components to successful convictions in his cases.
 
"Trooper Walport goes out of his way to help other troopers and officers from local agencies in detecting and apprehending impaired drivers," said OSP Lieutenant Kelly Collins.
 
Last year's award recipient in this category for OSP was Trooper Ian McKay from the Newport Area Command office.
