It’s two things we want our members to accomplish every day in their duties, helping their community and returning home at the end of their shifts. The POAM is proud to announce the 2021 POAM Police Officers of the Year. We’ve carefully selected these officers who have exhibited bravery and selflessness and have gone above and beyond the call of duty to serve and protect. To learn more about these officers, visit their individual posts with images and their heroic stories.
