Neighborhood Watch Awards of Excellence Program
The Neighborhood Watch Awards of Excellence Program was established by the National Sheriffs' Association (NSA) in 2004 to recognize and honor those law enforcement agencies, Neighborhood Watches, states, organizations, and programs that are doing extraordinary things to promote Neighborhood Watches (NW) in their communities. These awards are based upon data collected and verified by the National Sheriffs' Association.
Any law enforcement agency, NW, state, organization, or program that has made an exceptional contribution to the Neighborhood Watch program based on the categories listed below, and is nominated, is eligible to receive an award. There are no restrictions on who may submit nominations. Awards may also be initiated and selected by the National Sheriffs' Association. All nominations must include the name of the person(s) who could be present at an awards ceremony to accept the award, should that person(s) be presented with one. Only those individuals/offices that are active (ie, registered) in the National Sheriffs' Association USAonwatch database during the year of consideration are eligible.
