Mr. Wolf was later recruited by the United States Drug Enforcement Administration as a Special Agent and spent the next several years investigating international drug trafficking organizations. He was the case agent for DEA’s international investigation of a Consolidated Priority Organization Target for which he received the DEA Administrator’s Award, the U.S. Attorney’s Outstanding Law Enforcement Officer of the Year Award, the DEA Exceptional Performance Award, and the International Narcotic Enforcement Officers’ Association’s International Award of Honor.
