COMMUNITY POLICING IN ACTION: PHOTO CONTEST
The COPS Office is excited to announce the winners of the 5th Annual Community Policing in Action Photo Contest!

How It Works
We will select twelve (12) winning photos to be showcased on the COPS Office Twitter and Facebook pages as headers during the 2019 calendar year. Winning agencies may be featured in an article in the COPS Office e-newsletter, the CP Dispatch, and a COPS Office issued press release. Please note that both selected and non-selected photos may be archived and used in other COPS Office communications for Federal Government purposes in the future. There is no cash award or other prize for this photo contest.
