Attorney General Recognizes Former District Employee


WASHINGTON – Fred Alverson, former Law Enforcement Coordinator and Public Information Officer of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of Ohio, was one of 160 members of the Department of Justice recognized by Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Deputy Attorney General Sally Quillian Yates, and Executive Office for U.S. Attorneys (EOUSA) Director Monty Wilkinson at the 31st Director’s Awards Ceremony today in Washington D.C.

The Southern District of Ohio was one of 31 districts represented at the ceremony which was held in the Great Hall at the Robert F. Kennedy Department of Justice Building.

"Our honorees include career executives and supervisors; Assistant U.S. Attorneys and Special Assistant U.S. Attorneys; appellate attorneys and law enforcement officials; administrators, paralegals, and public affairs officers," said Attorney General Lynch.  "These individuals, and so many others, have faced daunting and sometimes dangerous challenges.  They have dedicated their leadership and their expertise, their time and their energy, to the service of their mission.  And they have remained devoted, at all times, to the high ideals and deeply-held values that animate our country and our cause."

Alverson, a Hilliard, Ohio resident, was awarded for Superior Performance in Public Affairs. Prior to his retirement in August 2014, he served the U.S. Attorney’s Office Southern District of Ohio for nearly 20 years.

“Fred had an outstanding grasp of the priorities of the Department and the District, and was pivotal in promoting the mission of keeping our communities safe,” said U.S. Attorney Carter Stewart. “The District’s message, as delivered by Fred, was always clear, concise, direct and helpful.”
