It’s back! The COPS Office is pleased to announce that the sixth annual Community Policing in Action Photo Contest is now open and accepting submissions.
The contest was piloted in 2014, and each year we have received many heartwarming images of community policing interactions between the law enforcement community and the public.
We are excited to continue the tradition and provide this platform for agencies to share creative and spirited depictions of community policing in action that the public might otherwise not see.
State, local, territorial, and tribal law enforcement agencies are invited to submit one photo that reflects the agency’s positive community engagement and trust building with community members, stakeholders, local government, and others.
The COPS Office will select 12 winning photos to be featured on the COPS Office website and its Twitter and Facebook headers for one month during the 2020 calendar year. The winners may also be featured in this newsletter, the Community Policing Dispatch, as well as in a COPS Office–issued press release.
The following legal forms must be included in your agency’s submission in order for the photo to be included in the contest.
Photos must be submitted by 8:00 p.m. EST on Monday, November 4, 2019, via email. Winners will be notified no later than December 27, 2019, by email. All reproductions of the image will include the photo credit information provided.
