Shelly Kelly, DHEC Director of Health Regulation, presenting the DHEC 2014 Law Enforcement Officer of the Year Award to Angela Wallace
Angela Wallace has been named the DHEC 2014 Law Enforcement Officer of the Year. She has worked in the Bureau of Drug Control since 2002, and has recently been assigned to the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program as the law enforcement investigator/educator.
Angie has been instrumental in educating both new and seasoned inspectors on how to approach drug diversion cases. I’m proud to say that she’s also been involved in complex investigations in conjunction with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and her efforts have resulted in numerous arrests and convictions.
Angie always goes the extra mile and makes herself available as an expert in both proper pharmacy practices and current trends in pharmaceutical trafficking. Her familiarity with drug trafficking trends has proven to be extremely valuable in identifying organized pharmaceutical drug diversion operations.
Congrats to Angie on this special achievement! DHEC is fortunate to have such talent within our agency.
