Moorhead police officer tapped as DWI All-Star

A Moorhead police officer has been named to the Minnesota DWI enforcement All-Star team, the second time in three years that he’s been honored as one of the state’s top cops for busting drunken drivers.

Officer Scott Kostohryz, a seven-year veteran of the force, was one of 30 police officers picked for the team, which also included three prosecutors, Lt. Joel Scharf said in a news release.

Selection to the team was based on the total number of DWI arrests made in 2009, Scharf said. The DWI All-Stars were honored at a Minnesota Twins game, he said.

Kostohryz also promotes educational efforts related to impaired driving, said Lt. Tory Jacobson. He runs DWI portions of the Citizen’s Police Academy and helps with rollover simulations at Moorhead High School, Jacobson said.
