Community policing is a philosophy that promotes organizational strategies, which support the systematic use of partnerships and problem-solving techniques, to proactively address the immediate conditions that give rise to public safety issues such as crime, social disorder, and fear of crime.
In its 18th year, the IACP/Cisco Community Policing Awards competition honors those departments worldwide that have prevented and decreased crime and terrorism by forging partnerships with their communities.
This year, in addition to the Homeland Security Special Recognition Award, the Committee will consider Special Recognition for the best use of technology in support of a community policing initiative utilizing the philosophy and principles of community policing.
