Government of New Brunswick

The Annual Police Leadership Awards were introduced by Public Safety’s Policing Services in 2006 to recognize exceptional efforts of the policing community in New Brunswick in two distinct leadership categories:

Excellence in Criminal Investigations

This award is presented to celebrate success in the management and conduct of criminal investigations and to promote the sharing of knowledge and information with the intention of increasing efficiency and effectiveness of investigations. This honour is given where the outcome of an investigation has resulted in considerable improvements to criminal investigations.

Excellence in Organizational Innovation

This award is presented to recognize exemplary leadership and management of an organization that produces innovative achievements, resulting in a quality policing service that promotes a continued commitment to the citizens of New Brunswick. These accomplishments include programs, services, events, partnerships and other significant initiatives.


The public, community associations, police agencies, a Chief of Police or RCMP Commanding Officer can put forward a nomination. Your nomination must be submitted by May 15 of the current year for awards related to the previous year in order to be considered.
