Late San Diego Police Detective Donna Williams received a posthumous national honor on Wednesday in Huntsville, Ala.

The National Children’s Advocacy Center – a non-profit organization that provides extended services in prevention, intervention and treatment for abused children – presented the “Outstanding Service Award in Law Enforcement” to Williams at the 28th Annual National Symposium on Child Abuse.

Williams served as a San Diego Police detective from 1989 until her sudden death in 2011. She and her daughter, Bree Williams, were stabbed to death by Williams' son, Brian, in their Rancho Penasquitos home last July.

Detective Williams spent much of her career working in the child abuse unit.

Her other daughter, De Kenya, was in attendance when the National Children’s Advocacy Center honored Williams with the posthumous award for her dedicated work in law enforcement.
