2022 Medal of Valor Award Nominations are now OPEN!

Our New England Association of Chiefs of Police Medal of Valor Awards Program is now accepting applications/nominations for the year 2022 award.

It is the policy of the New England Association of Chiefs of Police (NEACOP) to recognize a police officer each year that voluntarily distinguishes himself or herself by extraordinary heroism.

2022 Community Policing Award Applications are now OPEN!

The NEACOP has for a number of year’s evaluated police departments throughout the six New England States for their efforts in community police. This was originally a work of the New England Community Policing Organization, but that agency ceased to exist several years ago.

The NEACOP aware of how important community policing is, especially in the New England states, decided to take on this process and continue to recognize the best agencies in our region. The award is not given for a program, but rather the entire agencies efforts in achieving a successful community policing program. The agency and its members have embraced a community policing policy that is present in its work and interaction with the community.
