BJA is now accepting nominations for the 2019-2020 Public Safety Officer Medal of Valor.
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 2019-2020 Medal of Valor is limited to incidents that take place between June 1, 2019 and May 31, 2020. Nominations will be accepted from May 29, 2020 until July 31, 2020.
