Making A Difference In Idaho's Criminal Justice Community
Idaho Medal of Honor Commission
Idaho law enforcement officials, firefighting professionals and emergency medical providers perform countless acts of heroism, courage and bravery in the line of duty every day. While many of those deeds go unnoticed outside the ranks of the police department or fire station, some clearly go beyond the call of duty and worthy of special recognition.
