What is Community Policing?

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.

 

The 2017 Award Submission Period

Call For Entries: 

Since 1998, the IACP’s Community Policing Committee has recognized outstanding community policing initiatives undertaken by law enforcement agencies worldwide through the annual IACP/CISCO Leadership in 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.
