Triple Crown Award

National Sheriff’s Association - Triple Crown Award

The Triple Crown Award was established by the National Sheriff’s Association to recognize those sheriff's offices which achieve simultaneous accreditation from the Commission on the Accreditation of Law Enforcement Agencies, the American Correctional Association's Commission on Accreditation for Corrections and the National Commission on Correctional Healthcare.

In 2007, the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office and Sheriff Glanz were honored with the Triple Crown Award, given by the National Sheriffs’ Association. As of May 30, 2008, TCSO is the only law enforcement agency in Oklahoma to be presented with this prestigious award and Sheriff Glanz is one of only thirty-seven sheriffs to have ever earned it.

Achieving these accreditations individually is a daunting task. Acquiring all three at the same time is an extraordinary feat. In fact, the Triple Crown distinction is so rare, that since the establishment of the award in 1993, fewer than 35 sheriffs' offices have qualified.
