Heather Mac Donald
The Memorial Fund’s Excellence in Media Award is presented to individuals or groups within the journalism, news, media and/or entertainment industries who have made an exceptional contribution to the law enforcement profession.
Heather Mac Donald, the Thomas W. Smith Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, received the Memorial Funds Excellence in Media Award for 2017. Ms. Mac Donald has been a constant voice in support of law enforcement officers. She has courageously attacked the myths surrounding the use of force, racial profiling and other unpopular views in support of our nation’s law enforcement profession.
“I’m proud to announce the selection of Heather MacDonald and ‘Patriots Day’ as recipients of our 2017 Excellence in Media Awards,” said Floyd. “Ms. MacDonald articulates her perspective in a manner that is fact-based, without fear of being labeled or marginalized,” he shared.
