Donnelly said, "Our law enforcement officers put the uniform on and go to work every day to protect our families and communities. I'm proud to stand with them and to ensure that they have access to the mental health and wellness services they need, as many experience traumatic situations. It is an honor to receive this award from NAPO and I want to thank them for their support of my bipartisan Law Enforcement Mental Health and Wellness Act."

Michael "Mick" McHale, President at the National Association of Police Organizations, said, "Senator Donnelly has proven to be a champion for law enforcement officers and the profession through his incredible efforts getting the Law Enforcement Mental Health and Wellness Act enacted. He recognized the stress and strain of the job and the necessity of giving officers the resources and support they need to address their emotional and mental wellbeing and he took action. The National Association of Police Organizations is proud to honor Senator Donnelly for his partnership and commitment to supporting the nation's law enforcement community."
