First priority in selection is given to the son or daughter of (1) a sheriff or deputy sheriff or (2) any law enforcement officer killed in the line of duty.

Second priority is given to a son or daughter of any sheriff or deputy sheriff who is deceased, retired (regular or disability) or is currently active in North Carolina law enforcement.
