Every day, law enforcement officers across the country engage in exceptional acts of bravery while in the line of duty. The OJP Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) recognizes their actions with one of the highest honors that can be bestowed upon federal, state, local, and tribal officers—the Law Enforcement Congressional Badge of Bravery.
The nomination period is now open to honor actions performed by these officers during the 2018 calendar year. Nominations can be submitted by agency heads through the BJA online portal. Separate nominations must be submitted if multiple officers are being recognized for the same incident. An officer can also be nominated for more than one incident. Nominations are due by 11:59PM EST on February 15, 2019.
Learn more by reading the BJA nomination guidelines on the Badge of Bravery website.
Thank you for supporting our country’s law enforcement officers and recognizing their selfless acts of bravery to keep our citizens and communities safe.
