Medal of Honor
The Medal of Honor is awarded to a member of the Department who is distinguished in a conspicuous manner through a specific act of gallantry and intrepidity, risking his or her life above and beyond the call of duty. The gallantry of the act must render the recipient so far above all others that it is clearly distinguishable from lesser forms of bravery. The deed must be one that would not have caused justifiable criticism had it not been performed and the act may not be detrimental to the mission of the Pima County Sheriff’s Department.
