THURSDAY, APRIL 29, 2010

BOSTON, Mass. - United States Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz announced today that 113 federal, state and local law enforcement officials and one individual from a non-profit agency were recognized for exceptional service at the 12th Annual Law Enforcement Public Service Awards Ceremony.

The ceremony held at the United States Courthouse in Boston honored those who performed exception public service and/or contributed to complex cases prosecuted. The honorees were nominated by Assistant U.S. Attorneys who worked on these cases.
