An organization's values are codified in its awards system. The U.S. Border Patrol's Honorary Awards, demonstrates that the Patrol values the following:
Acts of heroism and valor
Law enforcement actions
Of course, that list does not include all actions by which a USBP employee may receive recognition for upholding an organizational value. Many times an employee may receive a performance award (cash), a time-off award, a non-traditional award or receive a recognition of prestige such as an Employee of the Month.
The links below highlight instances where USBP employees have received recognition for performing acts of heroism or otherwise exceeding expectation in the performance of their duties. These are examples of Honor First!
