Nineteen Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives will be among the more than three dozen investigators from several Broward public safety agencies honored Thursday at the Broward County Crime Commission’s 33rd Annual Criminal Justice Dinner.

Hundreds of supporters of the criminal justice system are expected to attend the gala starting at 6 p.m. at the Deerfield Beach Hilton. Following the cocktail hour, the dinner and program will begin at 7 p.m.

Broward Sheriff Al Lamberti will introduce keynote speaker Wilfredo A. Ferrer, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida.
