HAPCOA Gold Medal Winner Releases New Book
(Washington, DC) Hispanic American Police Command Officers Association (HAPCOA) member Victor Avila, a retired ICE Special Agent, has released his much-anticipated book, Agent Under Fire; A Murder and a Manifesto.
This book is a true story about two US Federal Agents being shot in the line of duty in 2011 on a highway in Mexico. This is a story of survival and of extreme courage under fire.
Homeland Security Investigation Special Agents Victor Avila and Jaime Zapata were assigned to the US Embassy in Mexico City when they were attacked and wounded by members of a notorious Mexican Drug Cartel. Special Agent Zapata died as a result of his wounds.
Agents Avila and Zapata were both honored by HAPCOA with the awarding of its National Gold Medal of Valor during its National Law Enforcement Training Symposium in 2018.
