Public Safety Fellows Program
The Public Safety Foundation of America established the Public Safety Fellows Program in 2010 to recognize individuals for their leadership in research activities and service to local government, while acting as a resource to planners and managers on emerging technology issues.
A Fellow is an individual that has demonstrated a positive role in furthering the use of technology for public safety and the public good and one who is currently serving, or who has served, in the public sector in local, state or federal government. Fellows will share their insights with the public safety community through:
- the development of research papers,
- speaking at conferences and seminars,
- serving as a mentor to government officials and public safety professionals,
- serving on special program teams or project network groups
- the submission of peer-reviewed writings on public safety communications issues to publications recognized by the Foundation as highly regarded journals in the field; and
Fellows will receive:
- formal recognition by the Foundation as an expert in the field and on the PSFA website,
- participation at PSFA programs,
- the opportunity to serve local government and the public, whether currently working in a public service position or not
Fellows will be determined by the submission of a formal nomination to the PSFA President, followed by a favorable vote of approval from the PSFA Board of Directors. Completed nominations must be submitted by March 1.
