Announcing: Nominations for Knight of Honor
HEROES IN BLUE 2017 AWARDS NOMINATION FORM
Heroes In Blue is seeking nominations for our annual awards. Heroes In Blue is a nonprofit (501c3) organization committed to promoting positive police and community relationships through empathy and action and to providing support to the families of fallen officers. The organization was founded in memory of Gregory Alia (FAPD EOW 9/30/15) who is remembered for how he served his community with compassion and respect for all.
Nominations are open to anyone in South Carolina. We especially encourage all law enforcement agencies to make at least one nomination. We also encourage citizens to nominate a hero who has made a difference in their life.
Two awards will be presented at Heroes In Blue’s Annual “Knight of Honor Gala” held September 29, 2017 at the Forest Lake Country Club in Columbia, S.C.: the Officer Gregory Alia Award and the Citizen Hero Award. Criteria for the awards is described below.

- Criteria for the Citizen Hero Award: an outstanding member of the community or organization whose actions enhance the quality of life for members of their community; who exemplify unity and change through love; and whose actions either directly or indirectly support law enforcement’s ongoing efforts to build safer communities.
