The Vidocq Society:
Halbert E. Fillinger, Jr. Lifetime Achievement Award

The Vidocq Annual Awards Dinner

The Vidocq Society held their Annual Awards Dinner at the Pen Ryan Estate in Bensalem, Pennsylvania on October 1, 2017.

This year, the Vidocq Society was proud to present Lt. Cmdr. Vernon J. Geberth with their prestigious Halbert E. Fillinger, Jr. Lifetime Achievement award for his outstanding contributions to the art and science of homicide investigations.

The Halbert E. Fillinger, Jr. Lifetime Achievement Award is a very special honor as it is not given out every year, but only when the Board of Directors deems someone particularly worthy of this recognition. Vernon Geberth is certainly deserving of this honor.
