The Jill Robinson Award - This is considered to be the Foundations highest award. Government agencies can apply for this award to be considered. This is given to a government agency that has put officer safety as a priority for their staff. This includes the implementation of training, policies, equipment, and overall support of their inspectors or officers. This is an important risk management award.

Regional Representative of the Year - Awarded to a CEOSF Regional Representative that has gone above and beyond with building partnerships, sponsorships, and attending events. As volunteers, this award honors a representative every year for their outstanding contributions to our mission as a nonprofit.
Certificate of Recognition - Presented to individuals or organizations that help move officer safety forward. This could be with assisting with legislation, donating body armor, training, or any other action that makes officer safety a priority.
