Last year FOP asked for nominations for this award. I found out after the deadline that an officer ran in to assist his fellow brother when an inmate had a shank. In complete disregard for his own safety, he incapacitated the inmate who was attacking officers. These are things that should absolutely be recognized for the courageous acts that they are. If any of you have nominations for officers, supervisors, or lifetime achievement awards. Take the time to submit your nominations. FOP members should be receiving an email with more details. If you are not a member, but you have a nomination idea, please reach out to me via email, This is how we change culture in Corrections. Recognition for those who go above and beyond the call of duty. One Voice United(OVU) is an amazing organization that is amplifying the voice of corrections nationwide. The nominations are for January 2023 to December 2023.

Nominate an individual for the National Medal of Honor — OVU’s annual award recognizing correctional officers, supervisors and staff who go above and beyond the call of duty.

Let’s set the narrative and shine light on who we are and what we do. If not us, who?

In solidarity, Andy Potter and Brian Dawe

OVU Executive Director and National Director
