DETAILS:

The Helene and Joseph Sherwood Family Prize recognizes law enforcement officers, units, agencies or programs that:

• Demonstrated an outstanding commitment to combating extremism, bigotry and hatred by performing acts outside the normal scope of duties
• Made an impact on victims of hate crimes or bias-motivated incidents
• Provided opportunities for education to reduce hate crimes and bias-motivated activity
• Used innovative approaches to enforce or prosecute hate crime laws
• Made a significant difference in their community and served as a role model for their agency
