This award, presented by Sean Schecter, Assistant United States Attorney, honoring the team responsible for taking custody of a dangerous suspect involved in local drug crimes. The suspect was found to be in possession of firearms, drugs, and a large quantity of cash and is currently serving time in federal prison. The case was a great example of how multiple agencies working together can make a difference in reducing crime and the fear of crime.
