The FBI honored 56 individuals and organizations for their “extraordinary” contributions to education and the prevention of crime at the bureau’s headquarters on Friday.

Director James Comey presented the Community Leadership Award, which has been given annually since 1990.

The idea is to “publicly honor those who have gone above and beyond the call to service by tirelessly working to make their own cities and towns a better and safer place for their fellow residents.”

“They are united by a single thing—an effort to do good,” Comey said of the recipients.
