Improving Officer Morale
In the arena of human life the honors and rewards fall to those who show their good qualities in action. – Aristotle
The American Police Hall of Fame National Awards Program was started more then 40 years ago to fill the void of recognition for worthy American law enforcement officers. The vast majority of recognition law enforcement officers receive is negative press in the local news. It is not often that their good deeds get noticed and are rarely mentioned. An awards program counteracts this skewed public image and can have long reaching effects. Awards are the best way to make the officer aware that he/she is appreciated and a valuable asset to American society.
