Make sure to join the Hero's Hall of Valor group.


Welcome to our Hall of Valor. This forum will a be a proclamation of law enforcment heroism, valor and life saving. We have an Officer Down Group that honors those who have died in the line of duty. This forum will be for cops who have performed actions above and beyond the call of duty under fire (mminent or otherwise) and/or have saved lives. A key element: The officer will need to be a survivor. No posthumous postings.


As we launch this forum, we need to allow this group to be fluid. It may change format a bit, get tuned here and there.


I have consulted with our Moderator Team. This Hero's Hall of Valor group is a result of our collective ideas. We want this place to be 'sacred' and honoring of those who have been recipients of a Medal of Honor, Medal of Valor, Life Saving Medal or equivalent of the aforementioned. Definitions of what these awards will vary from agency to agency. The 'citations' in here will be from your personal knowledge, your research and/or your random media research where heroic actions are discovered.


The officer or department can be anywhere in the U.S. This will not be for military or foreign countries actions. Unless otherwise granted permission or appropriate, there is no need to make reference to another PL user by their username. Do not point out that the officer/deputy involved is from PL unless you have an ok from them.


Format: Whatever you post as an initial post, make sure you have assurance that the information is correct and true. No fantasy posts. If you live in Oregon and discover a legitimate event in Florida, go ahead and post it up. You will need to start a new topic within the group for each separate entry.


You will need to provide a source of your information. It will be a link to a news source. The way you post a link on our site is not hard but you have to pay attention. Until we have another way do it this way, do this. Cut and paste the link in a new topic in this group. Put a hyphen in the front of the link. Then go to the end of the link, backspace one space and you will see the link protocol disappear. If you do no 'deactivate' the link, it will not post.


Ok, next: You will need to provide a brief summary of the heroic act. You can provide a summary in a short paragraph or expand it anyway you want. We'll see how we can standarize the posts as we go.


Non-gory photos are permissible.


Ok, I will step back from here and see where we go.

Clarification:


So, the standard is that the officer must have been cited by his agency? In other words--not simply stories of life-saving or otherwise valorous actions by LEOs, but, at least personal knowledge of citation and a news source documenting the incident for which they were cited?

Yes, the officer must have been recognized by his agency. He/she must have been the recipient of some type of legitimate award, medal or citation/commendation.


Yes, the heroic action must be documented in an independent media source. Even an agency website would be good.


The Congressional Medal of Honor is presented to the recipient only after affidavits are documented with at least 3 witnesses to that action. Point being that it is not simply a recounting of one's daily task that is part and parcel of our work. It is an action of high notoriety. Imminent danger is usually part of the actual event.
