RENO, Nev. (AP) - The outgoing Washoe County sheriff will be serving on a federal board that nominates officers for a prestigious heroism award.

Sen. Harry Reid announced Thursday that Sheriff Mike Haley will serve on the Public Safety Officer Medal Of Valor Review Board.

The award was created in 2003 and honors police, firefighters and medical personnel for heroic acts. Haley will be part of the group that recommends award candidates to the U.S. Attorney General.

Haley has been Washoe County Sheriff since 2007, but opted out of a third term.

Former Nevada Highway Patrol spokesman Chuck Allen will be taking over the role.
