Local Agents Honored

Two West Palm Beach police agents receive a prestigious national award for their hard work.

Agents David Weeks and Richard Birch are not used to this type of attention.

They are two of only ten around the country that will be honored by the International Association of Chiefs of Police. They stand out because they brought down an international drug cartel that shot and killed the Escobedo family along the turnpike in St Lucie County nearly 3 years ago.

Last May 4 guilty verdicts were handed down due to the agents hard work.

On Sunday Parade Magazine will feature them in a special article.
