NDPOA Awards - with no submission deadline

The NDPOA has several awards for nomination.  Law Enforcement officers and individual citizens who distinguish themselves with the act of exemplary performance, service, or achievement are eligible to receive recognition from the NDPOA through the NDPOA’s award process. Each nomination is reviewed by the Executive Board and a decision is made if the nominee shall receive the award.  The board encourages all NDPOA members and Non-members to submit nominations for NDPOA awards when they are witnesses to outstanding acts of service.  The NDPOA will do everything possible to recognize individual efforts.
