It is the policy of the St. Petersburg Police Department to recognize employees for exemplary performance of their duties through the formal use of commendations. There are three categories: written acknowledgment (letters of recognition), departmental awards, and community-sponsored awards.

The police department sponsors a Medal of Valor for officers who distinguish themselves by an act of conspicuous bravery while consciously facing imminent, life-threatening peril. The Meritorious Service Award is presented to employees who demonstrate exemplary service of great importance to law enforcement.

Hundreds of letters, emails and phone calls are received each year by citizens expressing their gratitude for a job well done. You may compliment an employee by letter, email, phone call or by completing our online form.
