National Case of the Year and Case of the Quarter Awards 

 

 The USPCA has a really cool Case of the Year/Case of the quarter awards program.   This Case of the Year program is designed to recognize the dangerous and difficult work that our members do every day!  This is how it works:  

1)    The Handler involved in the case must be a current member at the time of the incident.   For January cases,  your membership must be in to the regional office before February 1st in order to be considered for a case of the quarter.   If there are multiple handlers involved,  they all must be current members.    The Regional Office (Secretary or designee) will be the one to submit the case generally.   If a member submits a case,  the National Secretary will confirm submission with the members primary region.  

2)    Cases are selected on a quarterly basis,  and then at the end of the year,  the four quarter winners will face off for the Case of the year selection.    The quarters are as listed below: 

                             1st Quarter -  January through March - Submitted by April 30th  

                             2nd Quarter - April through June -   Submitted by July 31st  

                            3rd Quarter -  July through September -  Submitted by October 31st 

                            4th Quarter -  October through December - Submitted by January 31st   

3)    Cases must be submitted on a word document.   The reason for this is that we may need to redact information that is not needed or should not be public.   When you submit your case,  please remove suspect names,  exact addresses,  etc.   

4)      There are two options:    Detection and Patrol.    Tracking falls under Patrol.   Any detection work obviously falls under Detection to include article evidence detection,  game detection,  explosive,  narcotics,  etc.    You must declare what category when you submit your case.   Regional Approval will be obtained by the National Office on all online submissions.
