The success of the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office Special Enforcement Unit’s undercover operations is due largely in part to Captain Dillard’s leadership and expertise. The memory of Detective Sergeant Barry Graves lives on through the continued success of members of law enforcement throughout New Jersey who work in an undercover capacity”.
