Deputy Of The Year

Deputy of the Year Nominations Open!

These awards are given annually to sheriffs’ deputies and correctional officers who exhibit outstanding performance above and beyond the line of duty. A deputy is nominated by his or her respective sheriff in a choice of six different categories. Nominees are then rated by an impartial awards committee using secret ballots. The winners are recognized in a special ceremony at the Association’s annual joint training conference in September.
