During the month of March, we’ll begin weekly bracket-style voting. ELGL members get extra chances to vote, and we’ll use social media to also showcase the nominated facilities and highlight your community pride.

The public safety facilities in the running for the #ELGLKnope award get fame, recognition, and community support to showcase community pride!

Make your nomination today:

This award is not about recognizing the newest or shiniest building. It’s about celebrating the work and the people who are inside the building, doing great work for our communities.

Nominating your police or fire station is the first step in celebrating the work of these essential local government employees. So don’t fret if your police station isn’t the most beautiful building you’ve ever seen, or if your fire station isn’t brand new – if you love your police and fire departments, make your nomination today so ELGL can celebrate their work and their service.
