1999 IACP Community Policing Award
August 20, 1999, the Clearwater Police Department was notified
by Director Larry Kempler, Chairman of the
International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) Community
Policing Committee that the committee and corporate sponsor ITT
Industries Night Vision had selected
the Clearwater Police Department to receive the 1999 IACP International
Community Policing Award. Clearwater's entry was one of five winners
selected from almost 200 entries from communities and agencies
across the United States and from six foreign countries.
The winners were selected from each of five (5) categories according to population. The selection process evaluated how each candidate agency successfully:
In a letter to the Clearwater City Commission, Chief Klein said, "This award is a real credit to all of the employees of the Clearwater Police Department who have worked so hard in developing our vision of community policing which has been recognized as as the best for a city our size internationally."
The Clearwater Police Department has been a leader in community policing initiatives including decentralization of resources and command, neighborhood patrol teams and facilities, homeless intervention, and interactive neighborhood-based television.
This is the second year in a row that the Clearwater Police Department has won an IACP international award. In 1998, Clearwater Police Lieutenant Steve Burch was awarded the J. Stannard Baker Award for his contributions to highway safety.
