Wayne J. Wunder Memorial Award

The Wayne J. Wunder Memorial Award is given annually in memory of the late Wayne J. Wunder, security pioneer and founder of Continental Secret Service in Toledo, Ohio.

The award recognizes exceptional contributions to NCISS by members who characteristically are not in the forefront in terms of recognition.
