The New England Association of Chiefs of Police presented their 2018 Medal of Valor Awards. View the 2018 Heroic Recipients here.
It is the policy of the New England Association of Chiefs of Police (NEACOP) to recognize a police officer each year that voluntarily distinguishes himself or herself by extraordinary heroism. The officer must be fully aware of the imminent threat to his or her personal safety and must have acted above and beyond the call of duty at the risk of his or her own life or well-being. Some nominations may be for more than one officer as a result of nominees being involved in a single incident. Such nominations should be judged as a single nomination. The award may be made posthumously
