FBI Special Agent in Charge (SAC) John Brown is pleased to announce Sandy Moul as the 2018 recipient of the FBI Director’s Community Leadership Award (DCLA). SAC Brown presented the award to Ms. Moul during an “Infragard San Diego” meeting held on January 30, 2019.
Director’s Community Leadership Award
The FBI can only conduct investigations and protect the American people from crime and acts of extremism if it has the support and understanding of the American people. That’s why the special agents-in-charge of each of our 56 field offices work so closely with their communities and community organizations. What happens when these special agents-in-charge get such tremendous support from people in their communities that they want to specially recognize them? They nominate them for a Director’s Community Leadership Award (DCLA). This special award, presented on behalf of the Director of the FBI, was formally created in 1990 as a way to honor individuals and organizations for their efforts in combating crime, terrorism, drugs, and violence in America.
2018 San Diego FBI-DCLA Recipient – Sandy Moul
Sandy Moul was selected by SAC Brown for her dedicated volunteer public service in the field of Critical Infrastructure and Key Resource (CIKR) protection to enhance San Diego and Imperial County’s security posture and emergency preparedness, primarily through her service as the InfraGard San Diego, Chapter President.
Through a combination of educational programs, training, and information-sharing initiatives, Ms. Moul’s work at Infragard has significantly increased security in San Diego particularly regarding threats, ranging from crime and terrorism to cyberattacks, natural disasters, and public health issues.
Throughout the last year, Ms. Moul led a progressive Infragard agenda including security minded programs, partnerships, education, and training. For example, she organized and led many world-class events attracting top tiered experts. In October 2018, InfraGard collaborated with the Wall Street Journal’s ‘WSJ Pro Cybersecurity Small Business Academy’ to address cyber security from every angle. In March 2018, Ms. Moul organized CYBER2028, the chapter’s 4th annual futurist cyber security summit. In addition, Ms. Moul worked with the U.S. State Department-San Diego Diplomacy Council to sponsor the InfraGard Global Security Summit, which attracted law enforcement leaders from Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. Ms. Moul also hosted presentations by participants in the San Bernardino terrorist attack and the Dallas Texas shooting attack. These premier events, led by Ms. Moul and held at the world-class venues of local partners, educated more than one thousand attendees and significantly increased San Diego’s security awareness, knowledge base, and collaboration.
