The nomination period for the 2011 Medal of Valor has been extended to January 31, 2012.
The CDCR’s Medal of Valor ceremony recognizes those who have performed their jobs above and beyond the call of duty and, in some instances performed acts of heroism. These special men and women are nominated by their supervisors or peers for their outstanding acts.

The awards presented during the Medal of Valor ceremony include Distinguished Service awards, Unit Citation awards, Bronze Awards, Silver Awards, Gold Awards and the Medal of Valor. There also are awards presented to the Correctional Officer of the Year and to the Correctional Supervisor of the Year.
If you would like to nominate someone for an award, complete the forms (only available on the intranet) and send hard copies to Jonathan Parsley, Office of Communication, 1515 S Street, Room 113S, Sacramento, CA 95811.
