Ralph Day Security Officer Heroism Award
Each year, one Security Officer is recognized for outstanding service/acts in the security profession by the Security Services Community (SSC) through the Ralph Day Security Heroism Award.
The Ralph Day Security Officers Heroism Award is presented annually to a front line security officer who has performed in a superior, gallant or heroic manner in the course of his or her duties and, in doing so, has far exceeded the expectations of their position and training. The award is meant to recognize an individual who performed a heroic act which involved circumstances where a private security officer risks his or her life or personal well-being to save another person.
- Nominations are accepted from ASIS members in good standing, contract security firm management, or contract security firm clients.
The Security Services Community will present the Ralph Day Award recipient with a monetary award (provided by a sponsoring organization), commemorative plaque, and a trip to the Global Security Exchange (GSX) which will include a Full Access Pass to the conference and 4 nights hotel accommodations. A travel expense stipend for the award winner may also be awarded by a sponsoring organization.
