Nominations for Leon County Deputy of the Year Award

The Leon County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) Citizen’s Academy Alumni Association (CAAA) has established an annual ‘Leon County Deputy of the Year Award’ to be presented to an outstanding Deputy during October of each year.

In keeping with the mission of the Association to “promote and preserve a close relationship between the alumni, the community and the LCSO,” the intent of the award is to provide a way for the CAAA to recognize a Deputy that has been identified by a citizen for outstanding service to the community. Anyone can nominate a Deputy for outstanding service performed in Leon County during the designated time period of April 1, 2011 and September 25, 2012. While the event/service must take place in Leon County, the person making the nomination does not have to be a resident of Leon County.

Deputies are serving the community in many types of situations each day. The categories of outstanding service to be recognized include; heroic life saving event, distinguished above & beyond service, community involvement, exemplary level of professionalism.

TLFCU is proud to have many deputies and other LCSO employees as members, and is looking forward to being a sponsor at this year's recognition ceremony. This year's recipient will also be featured in an upcoming TLFCU newsletter.

Please visit the LCSO website to download a nomination form. Award nomination forms are also available through the Leon County Sheriff’s Office Crime Prevention Unit or at any TLFCU location. After the nomination deadline, the nominations will be reviewed by a panel consisting of the Sheriff, members of CAAA and members of the community.

The award will consist of a cash award, an engraved plaque, and be featured in an upcoming TLFCU newsletter. The award presentation will be made at the graduation banquet of the LCSO Citizen’s Academy in October 9, 2012.
