On Tuesday, September 18, 2018, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Justice Department leadership honored the recipients of the Second Annual Attorney General’s Award for Distinguished Service in Policing, recognizing the exceptional work of 25 law enforcement officers and deputies from 12 jurisdictions across the country.
The Attorney General’s Award recognizes individual state, local, and tribal sworn rank-and-file police officers and deputies for exceptional efforts in policing. The awarded officers and deputies have demonstrated active engagement with the community in one of three areas: criminal investigations, field operations or innovations in community policing. The Department received 207 nominations for 469 individuals ranging from state police departments, to local police, to campus public safety agencies. This award highlights the work that officers and deputies do to prevent, intervene in, and respond to crime and public safety issues.
The Community Policing Dispatch e-newsletter will dedicate the November issue to highlighting the award recipients of the Attorney General’s Award for Distinguished Service in Policing. The full list of award recipients may be found in the Department of Justice’s Office of Public Affairs press release.
