The Banquet Tradition:

From its inception on September 4th, 1977, the Fort Lauderdale Chapter of ASIS International has stood proudly beside police officers from all communities in Broward County.  We have made the Broward County Law Enforcement Appreciation Banquet an annual event to honor individual police officers who have excelled in their profession and who have gone beyond the call of duty to protect our communities, businesses, homes, and families.
