Lifetime in Law Enforcement Achievement Award

The Lifetime in Law Enforcement Achievement Award seeks to recognize a leader in law enforcement who has made a difference in their communities through exceptional dedication and compassion.


The Lifetime Law Enforcement Achievement Award is open to all law enforcement officers who are below the rank of senior official, including those working for organizations that are not police agencies (such as Canada Border Services Agency, Correctional Service of Canada, etc.) and who have over 15 years of experience.

*Note: the “senior officer rank” includes personnel who have obtained senior officer status, normally at the rank of lieutenant or higher, such as chiefs, deputy chiefs, staff superintendents, superintendents, staff inspectors, inspectors, lieutenants and other equivalent ranks.


Blue Line solicits nominations annually for consideration. Each candidate must be nominated by two senior or commanding officers participating in the nomination and endorsed by the agency head.
