The Department of Justice is calling for nominations for the Public Safety Officer Medal of Valor, the highest national award for valor by a public safety officer. The president awards the medal to public safety officers who have exhibited exceptional courage.

Nominations are now being accepted for exceptional acts of valor above and beyond the call of duty accomplished between June 1, 2004 and May 31, 2005. Public safety officers include those living or deceased, serving or having served in a public agency, with or without compensation, as a firefighter, law enforcement officer, corrections or court officer, a civil defense officer, or an emergency services officer, as determined by the attorney general.
