Oelwein Police to Recieve National Award

The Oelwein Police Department recently received notice that they will receive national and global recognition for their community policing and community engagement efforts.

The International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and Cisco Systems has selected the Oelwein Police Department as the 2017 Leaders in Community Policing Award recipient. This award category is given to one department, nationally, that has a community population of less than 20,000.

Since 1998, the IACP's Community Policing Committee has recognized outstanding community policing initiatives undertaken by law enforcement agencies worldwide through the annual IACP/CISCO Leadership in Community Policing Award, sponsored by Cisco Systems. 

The award identifies and rewards best practices in community policing by recognizing police organizations that use the power of collaboration and partnerships to make local, national, and global communities safer from crime. 

The winners provide a model for improved police services on issues that are specific to individual communities but are valuable for all communities around the world.

"We are honored to receive this prestigious award," states Chief Jeremy Logan. "We have a great team here that really goes above and beyond to be active in our community and to develop relationships that build community trust."

The department will officially receive the award later in October of this year. "I could not be more proud that our staff is receiving this type of acknowledgement and to know that our efforts and programs are among the best in the country," advised Chief Logan. "This award further drives home the foundation of our community engagement program entitled "ONE", where we believe that one gesture, one action, one effort, one person, one team and one community can make a difference. We encourage everyone to be that difference."
