2006 Community Policing Award
 
 
Sponsored by the IACP

Since 1998, the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) have recognized law enforcement agencies worldwide that empower officers to work in partnership with local resources to make their communities safer. The Community Policing Award honors agencies and spotlights initiatives that exemplify successful implementation of the community policing philosophy. These agencies join forces with their communities, businesses, schools and individuals to prevent crime by addressing its root causes. This year, more than 100 agencies from 11 countries submitted entries. All of the entries demonstrated the value of community policing to law enforcement agencies as well as to the citizens of the communities in which they serve. After a rigorous judging process, the winners and finalists emerged as stellar examples of how a strong commitment to community policing can transform the way communities handle crime. For the third year, the committee also chose to recognize agencies for incorporating community policing principles in terrorism prevention and homeland security planning.

The IACP was proud to present the 2006 Community Policing Award winners and finalists. Their efforts focus on prevention and long-term community solutions rather than reactive crime fighting. Briefly summarized here, these agencies’ initiatives illustrate how the philosophy and practices of community policing foster a proactive approach that incorporates solution-oriented strategies and tactics.

Los Angeles Police Department

Los Angeles, California The Port of Los Angeles and the Port of Long Beach comprise the third busiest
port complex in the world, serving as the gateway for more than 80% of goods that enter the United States from the Pacific Rim. The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) involved community members and leaders, business workers, private security and news media in developing security plans and training processes. They distributed 100,000 emergency preparedness brochures, held community forums, gave presentations on homeland security issues and solicited community feedback actively.

LAPD was the only city to win the Homeland Security Award from the United States.

Harbor Division won the award for establishing a Homeland Security Unit which galvanized the law enforcement agencies surrounding the Port Complex into a cohesive unified coalition.
