The Community Policing in Action Photo Contest provides state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies the opportunity to visually share examples of community policing in action with other law enforcement agencies and community stakeholders. The contest, which began in 2015 as a way to celebrate 20 years of the COPS Office, has been so well received by the field that it is now an annual event. Through a competitive selection process, 12 winners are selected and featured on the COPS Office website and social media headers for one month during the calendar year. Agencies with winning photos are also featured in the COPS Office e-newsletter, The Community Policing Dispatch.

The contest is currently closed for 2018, but is expected to reopen in the Fall. Please follow the COPS Office on Twitter and Facebook for contest updates.

To view the 2018 contest winners and semi-finalists, please visit the 2018 Community Policing in Action Photo Contest Winners photo album.


For questions regarding the contest, please contact the COPS Office Response Center.
