PORAC (Peace Officers Research Association of California) shared a post.
Every day, federal, state, and local law enforcement officers engage in exceptional acts of bravery while in the line of duty. Often, such acts place the officers involved at personal risk of injury or result in their sustaining a physical injury. To honor these acts of bravery, Congress passed the Law Enforcement Congressional Badge of Bravery Act of 2008 (Public Law 110-298), creating the Federal Law Enforcement Congressional Badge of Bravery and the State and Local Law Enforcement Congressional Badge of Bravery. The act establishes an award to honor exceptional acts of bravery in the line of duty by federal, state, and local law enforcement officers. The medals are awarded annually by the U.S. Attorney General and are presented by the recipients' Congressional representatives.
We are PORAC understand the hard work and dedication our California law enforcement family puts in and encourage you all to nominate a colleague.
The nomination period for the Law Enforcement Congressional Badge of Bravery is now open until February 15, 2020. Follow the link below for more information and to download a nomination form.
