The National Criminal Enforcement Association recently recognized two Charleston County sheriff's deputies for their efforts to combat drunk driving.

Master Deputies Chad Barton and Chris Craven were named the top DUI Enforcement Team in the country for their work during 2013, sheriff's Maj. Eric Watson said. The team received the reward for the second year in a row.

NCEA Executive Director Douglas Wright presented the award to Barton and Craven in Nashville, Tenn.

"Indeed, this is a great honor and special recognition of excellence for both deputies, as well as for the Charleston County Sheriff's Office," Watson said in a prepared statement.

NCEA is a nonprofit organization that provides training for law enforcement officers nationwide.
