Boating Law Enforcement Officer of the Year Program

Nominations now open for Boating Officer of the Year

NASBLA is pleased to open nominations for the Boating Officer of the Year Award. The award is designed to recognize and honor outstanding service to recreational boating. Nominations are being accepting through April 1, 2014.

Boating law administrators should nominate candidates who have made an outstanding contribution to boating safety through enforcement. Nominations are open to all commissioned, certified or sworn peace officers authorized by the state to enforce the recreational boating safety laws of that state.

Three regional finalists will be chosen from among the state nominees and will win a paid trip to the NASBLA Annual Conference where the national boating officer of the year will be announced and recognized during the Awards Ceremony.

Nominations in the national program must be submitted electronically by a boating law administrator (or a BLA's designee) through the members-only portion of the NASBLA website by April 1.

To download the form to nominate an officer at the state level, click here. Send the completed nomination form to your state boating law administrator for his or her consideration before April 1.
