Alliance Against Intoxicated Motorists releases its new Top Cops list

Every year, the Alliance Against Intoxicated Motorists (“AAIM”) releases a list of the top DUI arresting officers and departments in Illinois.

There is a change at the top of the “Top Cops” list.  Trooper Eric David, who was tops on this last year with 208 arrests, dropped to number four with 151 arrests.  Trooper Lucas Sniady, who was not on last year’s top 10 list, reached the top with 192 arrests.  Last year’s number two, Chicago Police Officer Timothy Walter, went from 167 arrests to 148.

Here are all the officers who made 100 or more DUI arrests in 2018:

1 Trooper Lucas Sniady ISP District Chicago 192
2 Officer Elliot Tupayachi Chicago District #19 168
3 Investigator Andrew Hartman Rockford 166
4 Trooper Eric David ISP District Chicago 151
5 Officer Timothy Walter Chicago District #19 148
6 Officer Mark Januszewski Chicago District #24 109
7 Investigator Erik Freese Rockford 108
8 Trooper James Knaperek ISP District Chicago 107
9 Officer William Hoefler Cook County Sheriff’s Dept. 105
10 Officer Tesfai Tewelde Chicago District #25 104
11 Investigator Robert Trout Rockford 100

 

Outside of Chicago (which had over 1,800 DUI arrests) and the Illinois State Police, which had over 5,000 state-wide, Rockford once again tops the list.  The Top Departments are:
