AWARDS PROGRAMS

Florida Law Enforcement Officer’s Hall of Fame Program

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 are 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 coordinates the award and accepts nominations from the following 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 are considered. The FSA is permitted to submit up to three nominations for consideration each year. Nominations must be submitted by sheriffs and are then reviewed by the FSA Committee of Past Presidents. This committee consists of active sheriffs who are past presidents of FSA. These sheriffs then pick the top three nominations and FSA submits them for consideration by August 31st.
