The Steve Rolland Youth Peacemaker Award Fund honors youth who undertake community peacemaking activities in the Duluth area. The selection process for this award takes place through Men As Peacemakers. The award honors Steve Rolland, a 24-year veteran of the Duluth Police Department. During his last 14 years as an officer, he walked the beat on First Street in downtown Duluth. He was recognized for his peaceable attitude and ability to de-escalate situations as well as resolve conflicts. His ability to transform, teach and make friends while doing a difficult job made him a peacemaker role model.
