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
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.
