FBI Announces Community Leadership Award

The FBI El Paso Division has selected Patrick Turley to receive the 2010 Director's Community Leadership Award. The honor recognizes individuals who have demonstrated outstanding contributions to their local communities through service.

"Turley is uniquely deserving—he met all the criteria and then some," said David Cuthbertson, FBI Special Agent in Charge. "He's shown a willingness to lead, has been committed to improving lives, and has shown the desire to make El Paso safer for its citizens."

In addition to his duties as regional director for Adult Protective Services, Turley currently serves as board president for STARS (Sexual Trauma and Assault Services—El Paso's Rape Crisis Center), president of the Crime Victims' Rights Council, and on the Domestic Violence Prevention Commission.

Over the past few years, the award has gained significant prestige with the Director of the FBI personally making the presentation to those who made an impact in the areas of crime reduction, drug deterrence, and other public safety and security initiatives. Turley and his wife will travel to Washington, D.C. next month to attend a banquet and receive the award from FBI Director Robert Mueller.
