Frequently Asked Questions

Can more than one person, or a team, be nominated for the Medal of Valor?

Yes, recommending officials may nominate more than one public safety officer for the Medal of Valor. However, please note that a separate nomination form must be submitted for each individual nominee. Because the Medal of Valor is awarded for a single act that is above and beyond the call of duty, recommending officials must prepare a separate nomination form for each meritorious act.

Please note that when considering the nomination of a team (defined as two or more public safety officers responding to a single incident), there is no guarantee that all members will receive recognition.
