Sheriffs’ Award Nomination



  • whether the individual was knowingly aware that he/she was at risk of harm.
  • the actual degree of danger or intimidation present at the time.
  • whether the individual acted of their own volition, irrespective of the presence or action of others.
  • to what degree the person’s actions were beyond their normal zone of comfort.

The more detail you provide the more helpful it will be to enable members of our judging panel and subsequently the Sheriffs, to fully understand the degree of heroism and selflessness shown. Nominations should describe the scene, or successive scenes, which make clear the extent of physical danger and intimidation existing immediately preceding the brave act(s) and, as near as possible to what confronted the nominee at the time.
