FBI Dallas Special Agent in Charge Diego Rodriguez is pleased to announce the selection of Roberta Clark as the Dallas Division’s recipient of the 2013 FBI Director’s Community Leadership Award. SAC Rodriguez recognized Ms. Clark at the Anti-Defamation League’s Larry Schoenbrum Jurisprudence Award luncheon on Monday, December 2, 2013.


The Director’s Community Leadership Award was formally created in 1990 as a way to honor individuals and organizations for their efforts in combating crime, terrorism, drugs, and violence in America; it is selected based on nominations from each of the FBI’s 56 field offices. Recipients of this award are recognized for their service above and beyond the call of duty to help keep America and its residents safe.

Ms. Clark is the Anti-Defamation League’s Community Director for the North Texas/Oklahoma Region and a 2009 graduate of the Dallas FBI’s Citizens Academy. Her work has created strong liaison partnerships with community leaders, educators, interfaith leaders, law enforcement professionals, and others. She further enhances these relationships by offering education and training opportunities to identify and prevent hate crimes and extremism.

SAC Rodriguez said, “Ms. Clark is devoted to educating law enforcement and the public, as well as providing guidance and assistance to community members who believe they have been the victims of discrimination or hate crimes. Her commitment and her partnership with the FBI make her the Dallas recipient of the 2013 Director’s Community Leadership Award.”

Ms. Clark will attend a formal ceremony in April 2014 in Washington, D.C., where she, along with recipients from across the country, will be presented with the award by FBI Director James B. Comey.
