Lodge 86 President Rick Snyder presented a plaque to the Deputy Director of Intelligence Colin McNabb which reads “In recognition of your outstanding contribution to the members of the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 86 and Indiana law enforcement in support of criminal investigations and information”.

The IIFC is comprised of representatives from more than a dozen federal, state, county and local law enforcement agencies.
