WILMINGTON, Del. (AP)- The Anti-Defamation League is creating an award for law enforcement in the memory of former Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden.
    
In March, the ADL Beau Biden SHIELD Award will honor law enforcement in Delaware, eastern Pennsylvania and southern New Jersey who have collectively combated hate groups, extremism and terrorism; presented and responded to hate crimes and bias-motivated activity; and promoted civil rights.
    
Philadelphia ADL regional director Nancy K. Baron-Bear says the award is named after Biden because he "was a champion for the most vulnerable."
    
The inaugural ceremony will be held March 29 in Wilmington.
    
The Anti-Defamation League is the foremost non-governmental organization in the U.S. training law enforcement on terrorism, extremism and hate crimes.
    
Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, died of cancer in 2015.
