Honoring Community Leaders

It's a fact: the FBI can only conduct investigations and protect the American people from crime and acts of extremism if it has the support and understanding of the American people. That's why the Special Agents in Charge of each of our 56 field offices work so closely with their communities and community organizations.

So what happens when these Special Agents in Charge get such tremendous support from people in their communities that they want to specially recognize them?

They nominate them for a Director's Community Leadership Award.

This special award, presented on behalf of the Director of the FBI, was formally created in 1990 as a way to honor individuals and organizations for their efforts in combating crime, terrorism, drugs, and violence in America. We invite you to visit your local field office website for details on the program in your area, but we would like to capture here the names and organizations of the people who have most recently been recognized around the country for their service above and beyond the call of duty to help keep America and its kids safe.
