Federal Law Enforcment Foundation
Honors Special Agent Patrick Hamlette

Federal Law Enforcement FoundationOn October 27, 2005 the Federal Law Enforcement Foundation (FLEF) held it's fifteenth annual awards luncheon at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City. The FLEF was founded in 1988 by Anthony Bergamo, Vice Chairman MB Real Estate and a group of concerned business leaders who recognized that, despite the incalculable contribution law enforcement agents make to our quality of life, the economic protection they receive is often inadequate in the face of disaster. Financial assistance is extended to all federal and local law enforcement agencies. Programs funded by the FLEF exist in over 200 communities and 9 foreign countries.

Special Agent Patrick Hamlette of the New York Field Division received the Investigator of the Year Award for his unwavering dedication and boundless initiative while investigating Afghan heroin traffickers operating in the New York metropolitan area. These investigations led him to secure indictments and arrests of Boz Monammad and Bashire Noorzai, who have been designated as Narcotic Kingpins by President George W. Bush. S/A Hamlette has gathered invaluable intelligence regarding terrorism and heroin trafficking in the Afghanistan and Pakistan regions of the world. SA Hamlette has successfully built bridges with law enforcement and intelligence personnel around the globe.

Honored Guests included keynote speaker and National Service Award Recipient President William J. Clinton, Sir David Manning, KCMG,British Ambassador to the United States, Eliot Spitzer, Attorney General, State of New York, and his Eminence Edward Cardinal Egan, J.C.D., Archdiocese of New York.
