The deadline to submit nominations for the 2022 Public Safety Officer Medal of Valor has been extended to August 8, 2022, at 5 p.m. ET.
Every day, public safety officers risk their lives to protect America's citizens and communities. To honor that commitment, Congress passed The Public Safety Officer Medal of Valor Act of 2001, which created the Public Safety Officer Medal of Valor, the highest national award for valor by a public safety officer.
Eligibility for the this year's Medal of Valor is limited to incidents that took place between June 1, 2021, and May 31, 2022.
