The March 15 deadline is approaching for nominations for the "Packers Protect & Serve Award," which recognizes exemplary law enforcement officers who go above and beyond the call of duty within the state of Wisconsin.
Nominees should be active, full or part-time law enforcement officers who demonstrate leadership, dedication and a commitment to bettering their communities. Officers nominated should be those who have displayed heroism and/or exhibited extraordinary commitment to public safety, the community and their fellow officers.
New this year, nominators can select to nominate an officer or department for one of four categories: Individual Officer Award, K-9 Award, School Resource Officer Award or Department Award. Fifteen awards total will be presented: 12 Individual Officer Awards and one for each of the other three categories.
The Packers Protect & Serve Award is funded by the Packers and the NFL Foundation, with each award recipient receiving a $2,000 grant to benefit his or her department or a nonprofit with which they are involved.
Visit packers.formstack.com/forms/packers_protect_and_serve_award to submit a nomination now through March 15, 2023.
Further information can be obtained through the Packers' community outreach department at 920/569-7500.
The Packers Protect & Serve Award is part of Green Bay Packers Give Back, the Packers all-encompassing community outreach initiative. Combined with other Green Bay Packers charity endeavors, the awards contribute to a comprehensive Packers charity impact that was in excess of $9 million last year.
