'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Age: 33

Residence: Ohio Township

Family: Wife, Sarah; son, James A. Manning

Occupation: Detective, Allegheny County Sheriff's Office. He's worked as a sheriff's deputy for 14 years.

Education: Bachelor's degree in law enforcement, Point Park University; Allegheny County police academy; Central Catholic High School.

Noteworthy: Named employee of the month for December not only for his work in the investigations division but also for dedicating personal time to singing and playing the bagpipes at police functions, church services and parades. Manning recently completed his second tour singing with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra for its Holiday Pops show. Manning was first invited to sing for the 2011 show by the late Marvin Hamlisch.

Quote: “I'm so happy to have the opportunity to come back and sing with these professionals. It's a big honor. What I like about the detective squad, in addition to the people you work with, is that you get to know people in the community and sometimes, you're able to get them on the right track. It makes you feel like you're doing something constructive.”
