The history and tradition of awards conferred upon members of the unit has been one of a combination of Departmental, University and private awards, each that recognize exceptional accomplishment, distinguished acts, outstanding effort and a demonstrated exceptional commitment to duty through service to the University community.
While any of the award types/categories listed below may be issued at the annual awards ceremony, it is not expected that there will be nominations for each type and category every year. The various types and categories of awards are intended to offer the division and the committee an opportunity to consider a broad spectrum of outstanding performance, outstanding acts and outstanding impact to nominate for recognition. The Senior Vice President and Chief Law Enforcement Officer will make final decisions on issuance of all awards.
This process will tend to ensure the integrity of the award presented and to honor the uniqueness of the behavior demonstrated by the person receiving the award.
