Leaders In Law Enforcement Award

Leaders in Law Enforcement Award will recognize one Louisiana Sheriff’s Department and one Louisiana District Attorney’s Office for their exceptional work.

The intent of this award is to bolster morale, increase respect for public service, acknowledge improvements in operations, and encourage extraordinary performance among Louisiana’s sheriff’s departments and district attorney’s offices.

This award is designed to honor those departments who are making the most impact in their communities with the resources they have been allocated.

In March, The Louisiana Sheriffs’ Association and the Louisiana District Attorneys Association will notify its membership of the application process.

The online application includes a section for demographic information and an essay section, with no more than 1500 words, in which applicants are asked to expound on a listed set of criteria. Applications must be submitted by 9:00pm on May 1, 2020. Applications will be evaluated and scored by a CFA selection panel.

One winner will be chosen from a Sheriff’s Department and one from a District Attorney’s Office in Louisiana. Departments receiving the Louisiana Leaders in Law Enforcement Award will be notified by July 15, 2020.

An awards recognition luncheon with a check presentation will be held on September 10, 2020, from 11:30 A.M. – 1:00 P.M. at River Ranch City Club in Lafayette.

As a gift from The Brown Foundation, one Louisiana Sheriff’s Department and one Louisiana District Attorney’s Office will each receive a $25,000 award to be used at their discretion to improve operations and continue to encourage extraordinary performance.

CFA would like to give thanks to The Joe W. and Dorothy Dorsett Brown Foundation, for underwriting the Leaders in Law Enforcement Award.
