April 1, 2024
The call for entries is open for law enforcement facilities built after January 2020.

The fifth annual OFFICER Station Design Awards program showcases new architectural designs of law enforcement stations and training facilities that represent the very best in security and technology today. There is limited time remaining to nominate a facility. Entry forms and portfolios are due by September 1.

The call for entries is open for law enforcement facilities built after January 2020. Entries can be submitted in one of five categories through Officer.com/2024OSDA.

  • LE Facilities I—More than 50,000-sq.-ft. facilities staffing law enforcement personnel. Includes standalone police stations, sheriff departments, state police facilities, etc.

Entries will be edited for anonymity and submitted to a panel of judges consisting of law enforcement officers and architects specialized in law enforcement architecture. No judge will have an entry in the award program.

This year's nominations will be made through our new entry portal, making the process easier and more streamlined compared to past years. The entrance fee includes a full-page feature for entries in the November/December issue of OFFICER Magazine, as well as digitally on Officer.com.

Awards include Gold, Silver and Bronze for each category. Gold Award winners will have a two-page spread in the OFFICER December issue as well.

Law enforcement agencies are encouraged to contact their architect or construction firm to submit their projects, not only be recognized for outstanding design, but to honor the communities served and to spotlight their architectural achievements.
