IACP and ITT Announce 2005 Community Policing Award Call for Entries

Roanoke, Va. (March 29, 2005) - The International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and ITT Industries Night Vision (ITT) today announced the 2005 Community Policing Award call for entries.  Award winners will be honored at September's IACP annual conference in Miami, Fla.  Entries will be accepted until June 1, 2005.

"The winning agencies will demonstrate successfully that community policing is proactive and effective, and requires community problem solving," said Gary Kempker, chairman of the IACP's Community Policing Committee. "In today's anti-terrorism environment, community policing is key to intelligence gathering and securing our communities."

ITT and the IACP's Community Policing committee developed the award to recognize outstanding community policing initiatives by law enforcement agencies worldwide. To date, 35 agencies have been honored as winners and 68 agencies have been honored as finalists from 5 countries. Last year, for the first time, three agencies were recognized for their achievements around homeland security-related community policing. Again this year, the committee encourages agencies with homeland security-related community policing initiatives to submit entries.

 "Now in its eighth year, ITT continues to sponsor the Community Policing Award," said ITT's Larry Curfiss, vice president and director, business development.  "Each year, I am continually amazed at how law enforcement agencies are partnering with community members to make their neighborhoods a safer place to live."

Law enforcement agencies and citizens are eligible to nominate candidates in five categories. The categories include agencies serving the following populations: fewer than 20,000 residents; 20,001 to 50,000 residents; 50,001 to 100,000 residents; 100,001 to 250,000 residents; and more than 250,000 residents.
