Nomination Call for the National Police Award for Traffic Safety 2014

*Deadline for submissions is June 30, 2014 

The National Police Award for Traffic Safety recognizes excellence, dedication and initiative in the field of traffic safety by enforcement agencies across Canada.  The purpose of this award is to identify and commend agencies and their enforcement personnel for their work to improve traffic safety, and to encourage others to implement new initiatives or publicize those in which they are already involved.  The award is specific to an outstanding achievement completed or reaching a significant milestone within the 2013 calendar year.  Best practices collected through the award process are shared broadly with Canada’s police community.

Nominations for the Achievement Award are received annually on behalf of those that have dedicated significant effort and time in the pursuit of road safety. The Achievement Award for Traffic Safety recognizes members of the policing community that have made significant outstanding contributions to traffic safety over a period of time.

The Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police (CACP) and the Canada Safety Council are again pleased to request nominations for these two awards.
