Law Enforcement Awards Program
Part of the mission of the Police Heritage Museum is to promote a better understanding between law enforcement officers and the citizens they serve by demonstrating the role officers play in their communities' history and growth.
By establishing the Law Enforcement Awards Program, the Police Heritage Museum hopes to meet its mission by promoting the public trust and support of local law enforcement agencies by showcasing the achievements of local law enforcement officers. In addition, we hope to shed light on the community member that wears a law enforcement uniform.
The Law Enforcement Awards Program is sponsored by Republic Services, and is held in cooperation with:
York County Chiefs of Police Association
White Rose Lodge #15, Fraternal Order of Police
York County Lodge #73, Fraternal Order of Police
York County District Attorney's Office.
