OPOA Annual Awards Banquet


Each year, the Oregon Peace Officers Association presents awards to law enforcement personnel and citizens who have performed exemplary deeds or services on behalf of their communities.  Anyone can nominate a potential candidate for an award in any applicable category.  A committee of OPOA Executive Board members will review all received qualifying nominations and make award selections.

Awards are presented to the recipients at OPOA's Annual Awards Banquet. 

Awards are open to any working police officer, telecommunicator, reserve, corrections officer or others employed by a law enforcement agency.  The incident must have occurred in Oregon.  The recipient does not need to be a member of OPOA.  On-duty as well as off-duty incidents will be considered.

Nominations are due by August 1st, 2018

OPOA specifically solicits award nominations from Chiefs, Sheriffs or other agency department heads.  Nominations containing the written endorsement of the officer’s department are preferable. Nominations must include the mandatory minimum information, which should be completed on the online nomination form.
