In October 2014, the Hall of Fame was created through Section 264.0041, Florida Statutes, to recognize and honor law enforcement officers who put their lives on the line for the safety and protection of Florida’s citizens and visitors through their works, service and exemplary accomplishments.
Each year, inductees’ names will be affixed on a plaque in the Florida Law Enforcement Officers’ Hall of Fame, which is located on the Plaza Level of the Florida Capitol Building. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is coordinating the award and will accept a maximum of 15 nominations annually, from 5 organizations.
- The Florida Police Chiefs Association
- The Florida Sheriff’s Association
- The Florida Police Benevolent Association
- The Fraternal Order of Police
- The State Law Enforcement Chiefs’ Association
Only those nominations submitted and completed in their entirety will be considered. Complete nomination packets with supporting details should be scanned and emailed by Saturday, August 15th, to Executive Director Amy Mercer at firstname.lastname@example.org. The FPCA is permitted to submit up to three nominations for consideration each year. The FPCA’s Awards Committee will review the applications and make recommendations to the FPCA Executive Board for their approval. FPCA staff will submit three nominations to FDLE by August 31st.
