The Canadian Bankers Association says it is currently accepting nominations for its 2013 Canadian Banks’ Law Enforcement Award (CBLEA).

The award recognizes outstanding police work dedicated to fighting financial crimes.

“Banks in Canada make the security and safety of their employees and customers a top priority. The banking industry works closely with the police to help ensure banks in Canada, and their customers and employees, are protected from financial crimes including robbery and fraud,” said William J. Crate, director, security and intelligence at the Canadian Bankers Association, in a release.

“The reality of financial crime today means that police officers must often investigate cases that cross borders, overlap jurisdictions, and extend into cyberspace. This award allows us to recognize officers who have shown exceptional bravery and resourcefulness when investigating financial crimes against banks.”

The award, which is now in its 41st year, is sponsored by the CBA and the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police (CACP). The winner will be recognized at the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police Conference in Winnipeg on Aug. 21. Nominations will be accepted until April 30 and can be submitted using a form which may be downloaded here as a pdf or by e-mail
