Joseph R. Batte and Christopher T. Tortorice

The U.S. attorney general recognized 202 department employees for their distinguished public service in late October at the 65th Annual Attorney General’s Awards Ceremony. Nineteen other individuals outside of the department were also honored for their work. The department presented a posthumous award to Deputy Commander Patrick T. Carothers for exceptional heroism in the line of duty during a fugitive apprehension in Allenhurst, Georgia, on Nov. 18, 2016, where Carothers was mortally wounded.
