9/11 Honors Program

 

 

Overview

The honors system recognizes officers, officials, and organizations who have:

  • made achievements significant achievements in policing, public safety, and security

  • committed to serving and protecting Country and Global Community

They’ll usually have made their environment, community, and life better for others or be outstanding at what they do.  They must still be actively involved in what you’re nominating them for. The only honors which can be awarded after someone’s death are valor awards for bravery.

Whether someone gets an honor - and the honor they get - is decided by an honors committee. The committee’s recommendations go to the Secretary General, who awards the honor.

Honor Nomination

Anyone can nominate someone for an honor; they, however, must meet the criteria for the particular Medal or Award. In addition, one item to take into consideration. Typically, the 9/11 Ceremony takes place on the Friday afternoon before the Saturday start of the International Chief of Police Conference (IACP).  The supporting agency should consider that they would need to provide getting the recipient to the Ceremony, and we would encourage allowing them to remain at the IACP event.  They will enjoy many educational seminars.  Also, for those from outside the United States, there are special events and receptions for international guests, which we will assist in coordinating with IACP.

After you nominate someone

You’ll get an acknowledgment - but you may not hear anything else for several months.

Various checks all information to make sure they’re suitable for an honor. 

The honors committee reviews those nominations that are sent to it.
