Law Enforcement Congressional Badge of Bravery


Every year, the Bureau of Justice Assistance accepts nominations for the Law Enforcement Congressional Badge of Bravery (CBOB). This annual award recognizes federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement officers for actions that went above and beyond the call of duty. The nomination period for the 2023 award is from December 15, 2023, to February 15, 2024. All heroic acts performed by law enforcement officers from January 1 through December 31, 2023, are eligible for nomination.

This Partner Toolkit is intended to spread awareness about the CBOB award and consists of email and social media content, as well as graphics that can be leveraged.
