Nominations are received by Officer Lori Edwards. Names and other personal information that would identify the students is redacted from the nominations before they are sent to Do The Right Thing committee members for review. Each committee member will review the nominations and send them back to Officer Edwards in the order they select for winners. All nominations are tallied and the top winners are honored in an official ceremony at the Lakeland Police Department where they receive an official medal and other awards.
