Trumbull County law enforcement honored for work

NILES, Ohio — Local members of law enforcement were honored for their work to solve crimes at an annual event Tuesday at the Cafe 422 in Niles.

The annual homicide squad dinner was hosted by Trumbull County Prosecutor Dennis Watkins. Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, along with members of BCI’s crime lab, as well as former FBI agent Bob Croner were on hand Tuesday evening. Awards were presented to local police, prosecutors, and other various agencies in Trumbull County who helped to solve murder cases in the county this past year.

“Howland police did an excellent job working with BCI&I with the Milligan case. We have at least two cases involving the Trumbull County Sheriff’s Department in their detective department,” Watkins said.

Niles police were also honored for helping clear a homeowner of shooting and killing a burglar. Bazetta, Lordstown and Trumbull County CSB were also honored for their help in solving the murder of a child.

This was the 30th year for the event.
