Nominate Someone for a CACP Award

As law enforcement leaders, we are all aware of officers, citizens, and law enforcement executives who through their efforts make our organizations exceptional and communities safer. We are also aware of innovative community policing programs law enforcement organizations in Colorado offer in order to make their communities safer. The CACP Awards Committee needs your help in nominating officers, volunteers, law enforcement executives or organizations deserving of recognition.

We ask that you share this information with the leaders in your organization. Encourage them to review the award guidelines and consider nominating a deserving organization, law enforcement executive, police officer or volunteer for one of CACP’s many prestigious awards.

Nominations are open until May 15, 2022
