Destination Zero Project

Destination Zero Program

Destination Zero

The Destination Zero program is designed to help agencies improve the health and safety of law enforcement officers across the country, from agent to correctional officer, from trooper to patrolman, from sheriff to constable; Destination Zero is searching for programs that benefit all.

The primary goal of the Destination Zero program is to create a platform that provides all U.S. law enforcement agencies with the ability to research successful and/or promising officer safety and wellness programs and identify the resources necessary to begin their own risk management initiatives.

National Officer Safety and Officer Wellness Awards

The Destination Zero program is proud to recognize officer safety and officer wellness programs that proactively engage employees in initiatives that increase overall officer wellness and/or reduce line-of-duty injuries or deaths. Each year, awards are presented in four categories, and winners are acknowledged during Police Week ceremonies in Washington, DC.  More information about the National Officer Safety and Officer Wellness Awards is available in Award Categories and Criteria. If you would like to nominate a law enforcement agency for 2017 Submit Your Officer Safety/Officer Wellness Program or contact Nick Breul at nbreul@nleomf.org or (202) 737-7864.
