Moline detectives Jeremy McAuliffe and Ted Teshak and U.S. Secret Service Agent William Shink will receive Meritorious Achievement Awards during the committee-of-the-whole meeting.
According to Police Chief Kim Hankins, their investigation and coordination of the case resulted in the identification of multiple victims across the U.S. and Canada and led to the federal prosecution of Daniel William Becker Jr., 22, formerly of Carbon Cliff.
