Nomination Process

Featured officers come from state, county, and municipal law enforcement agencies and must be POST certified. Officers can be nominated by their respective police chiefs, sheriffs, supervisors or the general public. Featured officers are selected by a committee composed of representatives from KSL, the Utah Department of Public Safety, and Utah Local Governments Trust.

Please nominate an officer online if you know one deserving of the program.


Utah Local Governments Trust is the proud sponsor of “Beyond the Badge.” “We are grateful to our friends at the Utah Local Governments Trust for helping us to continue this important program,” says KSL Program Director Kevin LaRue. “Beyond the Badge furthers KSL’s mission to build up and connect Utah’s communities.”
