SCLEOA Annual Conference Awards

The Annual SCLEOA Awards Program was created to provide an opportunity for individual officers, departments and heroic citizens to be given their deserved recognition.  Each award has been developed to honor the outstanding accomplishments of law enforcement officers, departments and citizens for their efforts to perform above and beyond the call of duty.    

The SCLEOA Awards and Commendations Committee reviews each nomination and selects the officer, department or citizen that most exemplifies the criteria of each award. 

Please Note: 

Awards are presented at the Awards and Installation Banquet of the Annual Conference.   

All Awards Nominations must be submitted to SCLEOA by Friday, September 16, 2016.
