FY22 Innovations in Recruitment and Hiring -Community Policing

Community policing is a philosophy that promotes organizational strategies that support the systematic use of partnerships and problem-solving techniques to proactively address the immediate conditions that give rise to public safety issues such as violent crime, nonviolent crime, and fear of crime.

Community Policing Development (CPD) funds are used to develop the capacity of law enforcement to implement community policing strategies by providing guidance on promising practices through the development and testing of innovative strategies; building knowledge about effective practices and outcomes; and supporting new, creative approaches to preventing crime and promoting safe communities.

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.
