9/11 Honors Program
The honors system recognises 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 other people or be outstanding at what they do.
They must still be actively involved in what you’re nominating them for. The only honours which can be awarded after someone’s death are valour awards for bravery.
Whether someone gets an honour - and the honour they get - is decided by an honors committee. The committee’s recommendations go to the Secretary General, who awards the honor.
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. Normally, the 9/11 Ceremony take place on the Friday afternoon prior to the Saturday start of the International Chief of Police Conference (IACP). The supporting agency should consider 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, of which we will assist in coordinating with IACP.
