Each year, the IACP Aviation Committee and Bell Helicopter present the Excellence in Police Aviation Awards at the IACP Annual Conference to recognize aviation units that exemplify excellence in airborne law enforcement, as well as an individual who holds a management or leadership position in police aviation. These awards emphasize initiatives to enhance the general level and safety of operations, accident prevention programs, and the efficiency and effectiveness of airborne law enforcement.
Nominations are to be submitted by the head of a component or agency who holds current membership in the IACP. Submissions are to be no more than two pages in length and may be accompanied by no more than a total of three additional pages of photographs or supporting documentation. No video or audio recordings will be accepted.
