Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $400,000)
The International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) will implement the Discover Policing Initiative and its cornerstone web site, DiscoverPolicing.org. Discover Policing is a nationwide law enforcement recruitment campaign designed to attract broad and diverse audiences to police service through the clear and accurate portrayal of law enforcement career information. DiscoverPolicing.org is an award-winning site unlike any other on the web, providing comprehensive information on law enforcement careers along with a full-service career center. IACP will continue promote recruiting success in law enforcement. They will refine and expand the web site with enhanced content and increased interactivity, initiate a creative, multi-faceted public awareness campaign to attract highly qualified and diverse job seekers to careers in law enforcement, and conduct outreach to hiring agencies to promote use of the site as a recruiting resource. The project will also offer training and technical assistance to assist agencies in using the resources available on DiscoverPolicing.org.
