JOLIET – Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow announced that two of his prosecutors, Assistant State’s Attorneys Michael Knick and Dant Foulk were honored by the Illinois Metropolitan Enforcement Group Directors’ and Task Force Commanders’ Association at a banquet in East Peoria last month.


The association’s annual awards banquet brings together specialized narcotics task forces from across Illinois to recognize the tireless efforts of those involved in the enforcement of narcotics laws.


Knick was honored by the Will County Cooperative Police Assistance Team for his leadership and outstanding contributions as the supervisor of State’s Attorney Glasgow’s Drug Prosecution Unit over the past six years.


Foulk was honored by the Metropolitan Area Narcotics Squad (MANS) for his work as head of the State’s Attorney’s Forfeiture Unit, which seizes properties, vehicles, cash and other assets that were utilized in the commission of drug crimes. Forfeited assets were provided to MANS and other law enforcement agencies to further the enforcement of narcotics laws.


“Mike Knick and Dant Foulk earned these honors from the law enforcement professionals they work with every day in the fight to punish drug dealers and take illegal narcotics off our streets,” said State’s Attorney Glasgow. “The attorneys in my Drug Prosecution Unit work tirelessly under Mike’s leadership to cut off the flow of heroin, cocaine and marijuana into our community. And Dant’s tenacious efforts in our Forfeiture Unit have provided critical funding for the investigation and prosecution of narcotics offenses as well as for other important drug-prevention programs. I am proud to have these two dedicated prosecutors on my team.”


Knick joined the Will County State's Attorney’s Office in 1988. He has served in the Drug Prosecution Unit since 1991 and was appointed supervisor of the unit in 2004. In addition to prosecuting defendants accused of trafficking illegal narcotics, the unit also coordinates search warrants that enable undercover detectives to infiltrate drug houses and secure evidence against drug dealers.


In the Forfeiture Unit, Foulk specializes in identifying, locating and seizing illegally gained proceeds from narcotics and money laundering activities and other financial crimes. Foulk, who joined the Will County State’s Attorney’s Office in 2002, also serves in Glasgow’s Financial Crimes Prosecution Unit, which prosecutes complex financial crimes that target senior citizens and other members of our community.
