2022 Winner

Bonnie Locke, Nlets, The International Justice & Public Safety Network

Throughout Bonnie Locke’s career, her work with Lockheed Martin, the state of Wisconsin, Nlets, and as an active IACP member, she has brought together practitioners and industry partners to work and share their experiences in implementing state-of-the-art technology and information-sharing programs.

Bonnie has been an international leader serving on many national and international committees, working groups, and task-forces promoting and sharing law enforcement technology standards and policies.  Bonnie served on the LEIT Section Board from 2015 to 2019, has been an active CJIS Committee member, and most importantly rallied the committee members to keep the much-needed work going as their Chair when we lost Pam Scanlon.

Bonnie also helped lead the effort to create the License Plate Recognition website page under the IACP which has been an invaluable resource to agencies across the country.

Bonnie helped to develop five new working groups that continue to make progress in their work. These include Mobile Best Practices, Tech Resources, CJIS Data Integrity, Mental Health Collaboration with Law Enforcement, and International Working Groups.
