Bill Swaim ­honored by MADD

On September 20,  the Mothers Against Drunk Driving Texas State Office (MADD) held its Third Annual Law Enforcement Recognition Awards Ceremony in Austin. This event recognized efforts of Travis County law enforcement to make Central Texas roads and waterways safe from drunk drivers. MADD honored officials in several categories for their leadership, work with youth in the community, and enforcement of DWI and BWI law.
    Bill Swaim, an assistant county attorney in Travis County, took home the Prosecutor ­Service Award, which is given to a prosecutor who goes above and beyond when prosecuting DWI cases. Swaim deals specifically with multiple pending DWI ­cases, tracking all such cases to make sure they are consistent across all Travis County criminal courts. Congratulations, Bill!
