State Representative Al Landis (R-Dover) today presented Officer Alice Barr, of Cadiz, with a resolution on the floor of the Ohio House of Representatives. The resolution recognizes Barr on being named the 2010 Parole Officer of the Year for the State of Ohio.

“Alice has obtained vast experience and knowledge in her field, not only through the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction (ODRC), but through her previous work experiences and her involvement with the community,” Representative Landis said. “We certainly appreciate Mrs. Barr’s abilities and dedication to our community. She has certainly made a difference in the lives of many, and this honor is well-deserved.”

Officer Barr joined ODRC in 2003, having previously worked for the Harrison County Common Pleas Court. In June of 2010, she was involved with the Drug Enforcement Administration in the removal and dismantling of a methamphetamine lab during a routine search of a compact parolee. Her other involvements have included Operation Feed, the Stark County Homeless Collaborative, the Tuscarawas County LEADS Task Force, and the Harrison County Women’s Domestic Violence Task Force.
