Overview of This Information Collection

1. Type of Information Collection: Extension of a currently approved collection.

2. The Title of the Form/Collection: Public Safety Officer Medal of Valor (Pub. L. 107-12).

3. The agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of the Department sponsoring the collection: The application process is managed through the internet, using the Office of Justice Programs' (OJP) MOV online application system at: https://www.bja.gov/​programs/​medalofvalor/​index.html.

4. Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as well as a brief abstract: The information that is being collected is solicited from federal, state, local and tribal public safety agencies, who wish to nominate their personnel to receive the Public Safety Officer Medal of Valor (MOV). This information is provided on a voluntary basis, includes agency and nominee information along with details about the events for which the nominees are to be consider when determining who will be recommended to receive the MOV.

5. An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: Over the last four application submission periods, (2011-2012 thru 2014-2015), there were a total of 514 applications received. Taking this number into account, the average number of applications that are anticipated to be received on an annual basis is 128.5. This number does not factor in the ongoing outreach efforts (e.g., marketing and social medial outreach) that are intended to increase the number of annual submissions. In addition, it is projected that the application submission process takes approximately 25 minutes. This would include, reviewing the fields of required and optional information, arranging the information and populating the online application form.

6. An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: Base upon the average number of submissions over the last 4 years, and the estimated time required to complete each submission, the estimated annual public burden would be 53.54 hours.

a. 128.5 × 25 minutes = 3,212.5 minutes/60 = 53.54 hours.
