as in the Times Herald Record

GREENWOOD LAKE - Two police officers were honored in front of nearly 100 people Feb. 4 for their part in uncovering a drug ring.  Officer Dennis Gomas and Detective John Hansen of the Village of Greenwood Lake Police Department were given plaques at a meeting of the Fraternal Order of Police Jason Conklin Memorial Lodge no. 957 at the Ancient Order of Hibernians Hall, Monroe.  The November bust was one of the largest in southern Orange County's history.  Cops confiscated $100,000 worth of cocaine and arrested several local people on charges of drug dealing.  More than 30 officers from three departments were involved in the sting. John Miller, New York City Police Department's former deputy commissioner for public information, was guest speaker at the lodge meeting.
