The award categories include the following: legal reform, crime prevention, child protection, speeding the process, effective restitution, crime victims’ rights, alternative sentencing, reducing recidivism, lowering the cost, and other significant efforts. The program is open to all individuals, programs, and organizations within the United States. Additional information including nomination guidelines can be found on the Web site.
