Special Agent Gary Perkinson was presented with the OSBI 2007 Agent of the Year Award during a ceremony Tuesday at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City.

“I felt very blessed and I was honored to receive the award,” said Perkinson.

Agent Perkinson won the coveted award for his wealth of knowledge on criminal investigations and his ability to build relationships with other law enforcement agencies. The Ada agent has also developed an organization of informants and has an uncanny ability to acquire confessions.

During his seven years with the bureau, Perkinson has exhibited a determination for justice and tenacity for results which has helped solve numerous murder investigations and brought to justice a Mexican methamphetamine drug distribution organization.

Prior to Perkinson’s career with bureau he served with the Ada Police Department from 1992 to 2000.

“I was a patrolman from 1992 to 1995,” said Perkinson. In 1995 I was promoted to detective for the Ada P.D. and then in 1999 I was assigned full time to the District 22 Drug Task Force.”
