The National Law Enforcement Officer Hall Of Fame was created in 2017 to honor Law Enforcement Officers. The purpose is to recognize those officers that have gone above and beyond in one way or another in the line of duty.

 The Hall of Fame judge’s panel will be looking for those stories that show how the officer has gone out of their way to make a difference in their job and in their community. Any person nominated for induction into the National Law Enforcement Officer Hall Of Fame can be an active, retired or deceased law enforcement officer.  There will be several honorees inducted into the Hall Of Fame each year.

In 2019 the Hall of Fame teamed up with Calibre Press. Calibre Press is one of the most respected law enforcement training organizations in the country. For nearly 40 years they have provided world class training nationwide that helps keep officers safe and effective on the street. They also provide leadership training for top law enforcement administrators and supervisors as well as specialized courses focused on strategic communication that can help control and depressurize challenging situations.

The Hall Of Fame looks forward to honoring LEO’s each and every year, although most say they don’t do the job for the recognition, we feel their stories need to be heard.

In recognizing officers who have gone beyond the call of duty to provide exceptional service throughout their careers, the National Law Enforcement Officers Hall of Fame provides an invaluable means of thanking police professionals for their inspiring dedication and sacrifice to their communities. Here dedicated officers of every rank and assignment can be honored for their daily outstanding devotion to our safety and welfare. The behind-the-scenes professionalism with which the selection process is run is remarkable and the induction ceremony is among the most moving and meaningful events I’ve experienced across more than 30 years of involvement with law enforcement.
