HARRY E. NEAL AWARD: This award is named in honor of a former Assistant Chief of the Secret Service and Editor of the AFAUSSS Pipeline (Newsletter). The award is given to several law enforcement officers each year who have performed outstanding service to the community in the form of a heroic act or extraordinary investigation. Each officer receives a plaque and a check for $1,000.00 from the Foundation of the Association of Former Agents of the U.S. Secret Service.
This program provides an opportunity for AFAUSSS to support the U.S. Secret Service by involving the District SAIC, RAIC, or RA in the presentation of the award. The award is generally presented where the officer is stationed with appropriate police officials and AFAUSSS members in attendance. On occasion, the award may be presented at the AFAUSSS national conference or other appropriate law enforcement gathering.

AUSA Kimberly Pedersen’s experience and dedication led to 15 individuals of an international criminal enterprise pleading guilty to violating Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organization (RICO) and/or conspiracy to commit various counterfeiting U. S. currency offenses. This was the Service’s first prosecution of a counterfeit currency RICO case. She also coordinated the assistance of other U. S. Attorney’s Offices within other judicial district to include New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Georgia, and Florida. This prosecutorial cooperation led to the Service’s coordinated take-down which resulted in the seizure of over $2.56 million in counterfeit $100 Federal Reserve Notes located in a storage unit near JFK airport (NY), over $243,000 in genuine U.S. currency, a firearm and the potential forfeiture of real property valued over $5,000,000.
