The IACP/BodyWorn Leadership in Law Enforcement Volunteer Programs Award recognizes volunteer programs that demonstrate innovative, effective practices for augmenting sworn or civilian staff and/or improving service delivery to their communities.
Established in 2003, the goal of the award program is to recognize the value that volunteers provide to state and local law enforcement and to institutionalize the theories and practices of the national Volunteers in Police Service (VIPS) Program. Members of the IACP Police Administration Committee meet annually to judge the award applications and select the winning agencies.
The award recipient, will be invited to attend the IACP Annual Conference where the individual will be honored during IACP's Annual Banquet. Travel expenses (airfare up to $500) to the Annual Conference, the cost of one registration, and three nights' stay at a designated hotel are provided to the award recipient.
