The incident involving Fort Worth Police Department detective, Tanner Martin, has raised serious concerns about the conduct of law enforcement officers, especially when it comes to driving under the influence. Driving while intoxicated is not only a criminal offense, but it also poses a significant risk to public safety. The fact that a police officer, sworn to uphold the law and protect the community, has been arrested for such a crime, is particularly troubling.
