From Adams County State's Attorney Jon Barnard:
"I am proud to announce that 1st Assistant State's Attorney Gary Farha has been recognized for his outstanding efforts in drug prosecutions at the annual meeting of the Illinois Metropolitan Enforcement Group and Drug Task Force Commanders Association at their annual meeting held in East Peoria on October 6th. The Association is comprised of Law Enforcement Agencies throughout the state of Illinois, whose specialized mission is comprehensive drug investigations and interdiction.
Gary was nominated for this prestigious award by Robert Short, the Commander of the West Central Illinois Drug Task Force. Gary's efforts have been instrumental in the continuing fight to curb drug crimes, and is at the "tip of the spear" in prosecuting drug traffickers in west central Illinois. This battle has become all the more challenging with the scourge of methamphetamines, in addition to other illicit drugs, and Gary's efforts to bring those involved to justice deserve our thanks and our recognition."
