National call for law enforcement agencies to submit examples of successful safety programs

The Destination Zero program begins its fourth year of soliciting submissions for the National Officer Safety and Wellness Awards. The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF), in partnership with the United States Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance, is seeking successful strategies that law enforcement agencies have developed and deployed to help keep officers safe and healthy. This initiative is one part of a continuing collaboration to improve officer safety and wellness.

The Destination Zero program started in 2014 and is a clearinghouse of information on safety and wellness programs that have been effectively put in place in law enforcement agencies across the country. The program shares a myriad of information on www.DestinationZero.org.

There are four categories in which an agency can submit its safety or wellness program for consideration to win a National Officer Safety and Wellness Award.

  • General Officer Safety: This category deals with increasing the physical safety of officers by providing them with enhanced equipment, lifesaving first aid Logo NLEOMF Round fwgear or training to improve the safety of officers as they handle crime scenes or large incidents.
  • Officer Traffic Safety: This category is seeking those programs that specifically address driving safety and training to reduce crashes, such as an increased use of seatbelts and prudent driving strategies. These programs often include marketing and outreach efforts that remind officers of the necessity to use caution and wear their seatbelts.
  • Officer Wellness: This category encompasses a range of strategies that improve the physical and mental health of officers to support them and their families better as they perform physically- and emotionally-demanding jobs. Submissions in this category are initiatives that promote fitness, resilience and overall wellbeing. The Wellness category includes programs that involve peer support, counseling resources, as well as meditation and mindfulness.
  • Comprehensive Safety: This classification is for agencies that have an overarching safety strategy, which improves safety and wellness at every level. The departments submitting programs in this category should have tactical safety improvements, a driving safety component, and programs that support fitness, mental health and create an overall culture of safety within the organization.
