The duo were honored for their work on a domestic violence case in northeast Montana involving local law enforcement and DCI investigators. The two were called in originally by local law enforcement before DCI became involved and then remained on throughout the investigation. According to Jones and Ramsey the two provided shelter and relocation services for the victims as well as worked with investigators to facilitate communication between the victim and law enforcement.

Ramsey stated that the job was to, "work as liaison between the victim, the court system and law enforcement to help with the investigation." Due to the nature of the investigation and the great work provided Ramsey and Jones were nominated for the award by John Strandell, the Investigation Bureau Chief for DCI.

Details of the case are not being made public due to the sensitive nature of the work, the victim's privacy and the ongoing court proceedings.
