Attorney General Awards CSLEA Members for Achievements in 2016

 

SACRAMENTO – On October 10, 2017, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra held an awards ceremony at the Courtyard Marriott Midtown, to thank Department of Justice employees for their excellent work and outstanding accomplishments.

Among those awarded were California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) and California Association of Law Enforcement Employees (CALEE) Members Reva Headley, Sara Morin, and Ashlee Onwurah.  The three received recognition for their work on the Violent Crime Investigation Support Team.

Also awarded were CSLEA-CALEE Members Carmen Keeler, Samira Nassar, Marie Perez-Gonzalo, and Sarah Wesley for their work on the APPS Historical Team.

In addition, Attorney General Becerra recognized CSLEA – Association of Criminalists-DOJ Members from Sacramento, Ripon, Fresno, Redding and Eureka for excellence in Rapid DNA Service.

“The RADS program is designed to get the most probative DNA samples in sexual assaults analyzed in 20 days or less,” said John Miller, president of AC-DOJ.  “The law requires this be done in four months (120 days), but the DOJ Bureau of Forensic Science is getting this analysis done in less than three weeks. It can take up to 60 days to get DNA analysis done in a typical lab, due to heavy casework loads, but RADS is designed to get the most egregious offenders off the street as soon as possible.  The program is just about a year old now.”
