The National Maritime Intelligence-Integration Office (NMIO) is pleased to announce the presentation of its annual National Maritime Law Enforcement Academy (NMLEA) Award for Excellence in the Field of Maritime Domain Awareness at the upcoming Maritime Security West Conference in Los Angeles/Long Beach August 5-7.
Candidates for this award have provided exceptional service(s) to their organization in any of the fields of maritime threat collection and analysis, inter agency maritime information sharing/integration, and related system/policy development. These particular services have advanced maritime intelligence programs and improved the security of the maritime domain in their jurisdiction or of our Nation as a whole.
Nominees can be federal, state, local, tribal or territorial government employees, military personnel or contractors supporting law enforcement operations. (Note that “self-nominations” are not allowed.)
“This is a great opportunity to recognize the individual, group, department or organization that has done special things, or achieved specific milestones that have directly impacted the safety and security of our Nation’s waterways through collaborative, innovative, or advancing initiatives in our maritime domain,” said Mark DuPont, Executive Director of the National Maritime Law Enforcement Academy. “If someone is doing something that is making a difference in their area, their region or the Nation, then we want to make others aware of their achievements in support of NMIO’s efforts.”
