Funds will provide notification training and support for law enforcement


(SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS, October 12, 2016) – Law enforcement officers have the difficult task of notifying family members when a loved one is injured or killed by a drunk driver. Mothers Against Drunk Driving® (MADD) is working to ensure these officers have the tools and guidance they need when faced with these tragic events. In support of this effort, the Security Service Charitable Foundation has made a $1,000 donation to help fund a death notification training program for officers. 

“A significant part of MADD's mission is to support drunk driving victims and their families, as well as law enforcement officers who deal with the aftermath of these violent crimes,” said MADD Executive Director Jason Derscheid. “This generous donation will help us cover the costs of hiring a death notification trainer and the creation of materials for the officers.” 

Founded by a mother whose daughter was killed by a drunk driver, MADD is the nation’s largest nonprofit working to protect families from drunk driving, drugged driving and underage drinking. 

“There are few among us who have not been touched in some way by a drunk driving accident, and the work that MADD does in our community to build awareness, promote change and support individuals affected by drunk driving is incredibly important,” said Brandy Ralston-Lint, senior vice president of corporate communications for Security Service Federal Credit Union. “We are honored to support both MADD and our law enforcement community through this donation.”
