Submit Your Application for the 2009 IACP Civil Rights Awards
The IACP Civil Rights Award -- sponsored jointly by V. H. Blackinton & Company and the Fechheimer Brothers Company -- recognizes outstanding law enforcement achievements in protecting civil and human rights. The Civil Rights Committee established this award to promote recognition of the myriad activities performed by the profession that serve to promote and protect civil rights. These activities range from solidly professional criminal investigations of civil rights violations and hate crimes to innovative police community outreach programs that serve vulnerable and disenfranchised populations. The award underscores a fact too often overlooked: that law enforcement professionals are among the primary guarantors of civil, human, and constitutional rights in democratic societies. The deadline for this award is April 19.
