Law enforcement officers—whether federal, state, local or tribal—engage in exceptional acts of bravery every day. Often these acts place officers in situations where they become seriously injured, or, even worse, make the ultimate sacrifice, while protecting our communities and country.
It is time once again to honor these heroes through the Congressional Badge of Bravery. Nominations will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. ET on February 15,2021.
