National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund Honors Thomson Reuters at Annual Gala During National Police Week
Washington, DC—Today the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund is pleased to announce that Thomson Reuters is the recipient of a President’s Award. The award was presented during the Legacy of Honor Gala, held May 12, 2017, at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, DC.
The Legacy of Honor Gala, a special event held during National Police Week, celebrates individuals, organizations, and corporations that have assisted in the Memorial Fund’s mission to tell the story of American law enforcement and make it safer for those who serve.
The Memorial Fund’s President’s Award recipient is selected by President and CEO Craig W. Floyd. Mr. Floyd selected Thomson Reuters to honor their exceptional and lasting contributions to the law enforcement profession.
“Law enforcement officers face immense challenges during the course of their work. Having world-class tools like Thomson Reuters CLEAR software solution at their disposal makes their work more efficient which saves lives and keeps communities safer,” Floyd said.
Thomson Reuters commitment to equipping law enforcement with the most up-to-date information and solutions helps to bring security and justice to communities across the country. For example, Thomson Reuters online investigative solution, CLEAR, helped San Bernardino police locate the shooters who attacked the Inland Regional Center in December 2015. CLEAR was the only resource that identified a current address for the suspects. And in November of last year, an abducted infant in Detroit, with a time-sensitive medical need, was located and returned to her family within hours of her disappearance thanks to the use of CLEAR. The suspect was also apprehended.
“Thomson Reuters is honored to receive the President’s Award from the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund,” said Steve Rubley, managing director of Thomson Reuters Government Business, who also was on hand to accept the award at the Legacy of Honor Gala. “We are humbled and proud to play any part, big or small, to assist law enforcement agencies in their work to protect and serve communities around the country.”
