One of DC's finest recognized for work with and on behalf of youth
Belated congratulations to Commander Lillian Overton of the Metropolitan Police Department, one winner of the Council for Court Excellence (CCE) 13th Annual Justice Potter Stewart Award. The other winner was Earl Silbert of DLA Piper. The awardees have been described as "shining examples of service in our justice community." The majority of Cmdr. Overton's 25-year career has been dedicated to children as victims and perpetrators of crime and to working with others in the public and private sectors to provide the services and supports (and a nudge in the right direction) children and youth need to make good choices for themselves and others. Pictures of the event are here on the Bisnow site.
