ABOUT THE EMERGING ISSUES FORUMS PROGRAM

The FY22 Emerging Issues Forums - Community Policing Development Solicitation program will fund an organization to plan and execute two to four convenings with thought leaders in law enforcement on critical topics that are impacting the field. The applicant will also develop resources highlighting promising practices addressing these emerging issues that can be shared with the broader law enforcement community. The applicant should be prepared to work collaboratively with the COPS Office to develop topics for the emerging issues convenings. Forums will assemble thought leaders in law enforcement on critical topics that are impacting the field. Forums can be virtual or in person and result in the development of publications, toolkits, and other resources that provide promising practices on critical issues.
