To those who honor their values, beliefs, and code, no matter the risk involved…

In a time when law enforcement is criticized more than celebrated, we recognize our friends in blue who put their lives on the line to protect the well-being of others.

Our Extra Duty Hero Award (EDHA) recipients are a coalition of law enforcement professionals who demonstrate a willingness to combat adversity in dangerous scenarios while working an extra-duty detail or off-duty entirely.
