For the second time this year, a law enforcement organization bestows "Prosecutor Of The Year" honors on Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph D. Coronato.

Coronato was among the honorees during the State Troopers Coalition Awards Dinner, October 12 in Garfield, singled out for public service and accomplishments in support of the cause of law enforcement.

The other honorees are: Tony Lo Bianco, Man Of The Year; Captain Donna Roman, Woman Of The Year; Heather MacDonald, Excellence in Media; and Dorian Wilson, Distinguished Member Award.

Coronato was given the title earlier this year by the New Jersey Narcotic Enforcement Officers Association.

The Coalition is a branch of the non-profit National Police Defense Foundation. Proceeds from the event benefit "Operation Kids," a child safety program that also funds live-saving operations for critically ill children.
