Apply online at: www.iacpcommunitypolicing.org

Since 1998, the IACP’s Community Policing Committee has recognized outstanding community policing initiatives undertaken by law enforcement agencies worldwide through the annual Community Policing Award, sponsored by Cisco Systems.

The award identifies and rewards best practices in community policing by recognizing police organizations that use the power of collaboration and partnerships to make local, national, and global communities safer from crime and terrorism.

The winners and finalists provide a model for improved police services on issues that are specific to individual communities but are valuable for all communities around the world.

The IACP and Cisco Systems Community Policing Award is presented in five categories for law enforcement agencies that serve populations of varying sizes. Additionally, agencies that use community-policing philosophies in the furtherance of homeland security initiatives are eligible for special homeland security recognition, and agencies that utilize technology in support of community policing philosophies and initiatives are eligible for special use of technology recognition. The award categories are:

  • Agencies Serving a Population Fewer than 20,000
  • Agencies Serving a Population 20,001 to 50,000
  • Agencies Serving a Population 50,001 to 100,000
  • Agencies Serving a Population 100,001 to 250,000
  • Agencies Serving a Population Over 250,000
  • Special Homeland Security Recognition
  • Special Use of Technology in Support of Community Policing Recognition

Share the great work that your agency is doing and compete for a chance to receive international recognition for your agency by submitting an application for the 2015 Community Policing Awards.  Winners and finalists will be recognized on October 25th at the 2015 IACP Annual Conference in Chicago, Illinois.  For questions, contact Todd A.
