PURPLE HEART AWARD NOMINATIONS

 

The Iowa State Police Association (ISPA) Purple Heart Award was developed in 2013 for the purpose of honoring extraordinary Iowa peace officers who have been seriously wounded or killed in the line of duty as a result of a combat incident.

 

In addition, the award may be conferred if an injury was averted by body armor. This award will be given in all cases resulting in line of duty death, but will otherwise be limited to those cases involving an attack by an assailant or the performance of an act of valor.

 

Purple Heart Award nominations must involve an assailant attack or act of valor occurring or concluding between July 1, 2016 through June 30, 2017. This year, and in future years, the award will be presented to the recipient or posthumously to the law enforcement officer’s family at the annual ISPA conference in October.
