Jackson Officers Club on November 3, 2017.


Nominations should recite background information of the candidate and include such things as: (1) current position; (2) education and training; (3) length of law enforcement service; (4) commendations, awards, and achievements; (5) good reputation and character; and (6) accomplishments which demonstrate that the nominee exemplifies the highest degree of excellence in law enforcement.  Letters of support (limited to five) may also be included in the nomination.
