The 2011 Cygnus Law Enforcement Innovation Award ceremony was held at the Metropolitan Club, high in the sky on the 66th Floor in the Willis Tower during the 2011 IACP Conference in Chicago.

Representatives of leading companies in the law enforcement industry were on hand and anxiously awaited the revealing of the winners of this year’s exclusive Award program. The Innovation Awards recognize new products and services introduced to the law enforcement market during the previous year. Manufacturers submit their newest and most inventive products for evaluation from a panel of independent law enforcement judges.

Each product is placed within a specific category, pitting each product against each other. These categories include Body Armor & Safety, Communications, Corrections, Firearms & Weapons, Firearms & Weapons Accessories, Forensics, Software, Surveillance, Tactical, Traffic Enforcement, Training, Uniforms & Apparel and - last but not least - Vehicles & Vehicle Accessories.

In addition to these categories, judges were also charged with selecting a single product from all entrants for the unique Paramount Award.

The Cygnus Law Enforcement Group is comprised of the properties of Cygnus Business Media dedicated to law enforcement. These include Law Enforcement Technology, Law Enforcement Product News,, Enforcement Expo and the brand new Officer World.

While there were several categories, BandZorb is proud to have earned a place among the finalists. Competition is very strong!
