The next Night Vision Awards ceremony will take place at the 2017 Airborne Law Enforcement Association Expo (ALEA) in Reno, Nev., following a decision by the awards committee to move to a biennial format. The ceremony honors various departments and organizations for their accomplishments using night-vision-goggle equipment.
Nominations will open in January 2017, ahead of the ALEA show, which runs from July 23 to 28. This year, the ALEA event is being held in Savannah, Ga., from July 18 to 23 and in 2018, it will come to Louisville, Ky. (July 9 to 14).
“We look forward to hosting a bigger event with more awards with the new format,” said Night Vision Award emcee Scott Emerine. “We have received numerous nominations over the past five years and have been able to recognize many great law enforcement, emergency medical services, along with search-and-rescue operations from around the world. We expect the next award show to be full of worthy recipients who help keep the world safer through the use of night-vision goggles and equipment.”
