Jointly sponsored by the IACP’s Victim Services Committee and LogIn Inc, the Excellence in Victim Services Award (EVSA) recognizes law enforcement agencies that demonstrate excellence in providing innovative service to crime victims by successfully integrating current best practices of enhanced victim response into all facets of their organizations. The award recognizes agencies that best exemplify an organizational philosophy of placing victims at the center of their problem-solving efforts, utilizing effective partnerships, training methods and performance monitoring tools to enhance response to victims of crime.
All law enforcement agencies worldwide (private corporations or individuals are excluded) can compete for the award by demonstrating that an innovative approach in meeting the needs of crime victims within their communities has been created, and has either been or is in the process of being fully implemented into the agency. Annually, three awards will be given, one for each agency category: small, medium and large, determined by the number of sworn officers within the department.
After a peer review of all nominations, the IACP Victim Services Committee will select a winner for each of the three categories based on agency size. One representative will receive a trip to the 124th Annual IACP Conference to be held October 21-24, 2017 in Philadelphia, PA. The trip includes complimentary conference registration, transportation costs, three nights of hotel lodging, and meals during the stay.
