Lots of hard work and little recognition is often the plight of crime prevention practitioners and volunteers. Being officially recognized is a great honor. But it is even a bigger thrill when you know someone who deserves recognition receives an award because you took the time to nominate her or him.
At the annual CPAM conference in Traverse City,, there will be an awards recognition dinner . We want to recognize some of your peers or deserving individuals from your community or department. This will only happen when you take a few minutes and submit their nomination form.
