The NRA has a long history of supporting police men and women. "NRA’s relationship with the nations law enforcement community is an enduring one, reaching back through generations of lawmen and women," said Glen Hoyer, Director of NRA Law Enforcement Division.
Hoyer's division is responsible for the NRA's Law Enforcement Officer of the Year Award, given annually to a policeman or woman chosen from select nominations.
Established in 1993, the award is based on exceptional valor, public service, and dedication to the principals of our constitutional heritage.
Nominations are accepted from anyone having knowledge of the nominee’s actions. This includes, but is not limited to, the nominee’s agency head, other law enforcement officials, elected officials, fellow officers, community leaders, interested citizens, and NRA members.
For eligibility information, award categories, and complete information, view the NRA Officer of the Year Nomination Form.
Nominations for the 2010 Law Enforcement Officer of the Year Award must be received by October 15. You may call 703-267-1649 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
