RECOGNIZE
&
APPRECIATE

Who doesn’t like to be rewarded for a job well done or for going above and beyond the call of duty.

Sometimes the acknowledgement of one’s accomplishments or sacrifice by a superior and the presentation of a physical reward, be it a plaque or a certificate can mean more than money itself.

As an organization, we realize that not every employer offers such a reward program or recognizes all who are deserving of their praise.

The Private Officer International organization helps to fill that void by offering a three tier award system which quickly, fairly and cost-effectively honors the valued employee.

Basically there are three ways for an officer to receive an award from our association.
Our Awards Program is open to all private security, loss prevention, public safety, private-special police, investigators, bail agents and law enforcement officers.

You do not have to be an association member to qualify!

METHOD ONE

Our Awards Committee actively seeks out worthy recipients by combing through tons of newspaper articles, press releases and other public media to select men and women who have represented the security industry well or who have been involved in brave, courageous or lifesaving acts and the committee drafts a press release and issues the appropriate category of recognition.

METHOD TWO

The employer or third party may submit a recommendation briefly stating reasons for the recognition and the  appropriate Awards Packet including a press release will be mailed. No limits on number of awards.

A minimal administrative fee will apply.

METHOD THREE

An officer may self-submit a request with supporting documentation if available, stating actions that warrant recognition. The appropriate Awards Packet including a press release will be mailed. No limits on number of awards.

A minimal administrative fee will apply.
