Notice and Application

This award identifies and rewards best practices in community involvement by recognizing public safety personnel that use the power of collaboration and partnerships to enrich the well being of our local communities. This award recognizes an Isle of Palms Police and/or Fire Department employee that has used the power of collaboration and partnerships to make local communities safer. A nominee significantly and positively impacts the lives and experiences of their co-workers, citizens, and the community at large by engaging in important problem-solving activities and creating productive community partnerships. Additionally, nominees have implemented new programs or initiatives that have had a significant impact on public safety problems, prevention, building and enhancing trust, or respect for public safety personnel and community satisfaction, or have led to reductions in violent crime. The LENS Foundation welcomes nominations for this award, with the winners being recognized annually.
