Lone Eagle Award
The Lone Eagle award is an honor presented annually to an active and a retired North Dakota Peace Officer, each of whom, in the eyes of their comrades, has contributed guidance, inspiration, and support throughout his career as a law enforcement official in the State of North Dakota.
Retired FBI agent Herb Eckenroth, who worked in North Dakota for many years, created this award in 1979 to recognize a North Dakota Peace Officer who “…has shown incorruptible soundness or moral character and faithful adherence to ethical principles.”
