The Jim Fish Award is an annual Crime Prevention award presented by the Wayzata Crime Prevention Coalition (WCPC) to recognize a Wayzata citizen or Wayzata area business person for service to the community, past and present, in the area of "crime prevention." The award is meant to honor the recipient, and via the name of the award, to honor Jim Fish, who was instrumental in bringing and keeping crime prevention programs in Wayzata.
The person receiving the award should be someone who is known for their crime prevention activities and service over a period of time that encompasses more than just a single year. Examples of crime prevention service might include community recognition as a crime prevention leader and information source, serving on the WCPC Board, leadership roles in the WCPC or special WCPC activities, special involvement with the Wayzata Police or Fire Departments on crime prevention oriented activities or other activities, etc.
The individual will be recognized primarily for their contributions in Wayzata, but may also be involved in crime prevention activities that extend beyond their local community.
