The IACP Civilian Law Enforcement Military Cooperation Committee (CLEMCC) is proud to announce the winners for this year’s 2015 IACP/American Military University (AMU) CLEMCC award which recognizes excellence in law enforcement cooperation between civilian and law enforcement bodies in developing innovative joint efforts promoting public safety for both military and civilian communities.
This year’s winners are the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) and the U.S. Army Office of the Provost Marshal General (OPMG) for their submission of the Former Military Registration and Military Outreach Program. The program came about in 2014 after the USMS identified the military as an at-risk population and recognized the need for enhanced sex offender investigations, information sharing, and working relationships. Understanding the importance of cooperative joint efforts with non-military entities and the significance of establishing clear practices and procedures for sex offender registration compliance and non-compliance, the OPMG willingly and openly worked with the USMS to come up with goals and set strategy for the program. The program was such a success, that earlier this year the Department of Defense (DOD) established policy for the identification, notification, and monitoring of sex offenders who are affiliated with the DOD.
In addition, CLEMCC would like to recognize honorable mention recipients, Glendale, Arizona, Police Department and the 56th Medical Operations Squadron from Luke Air Force Base, Arizona for their submission of Joint Efforts of Support for Victims of Domestic Abuse.
All award recipients will be recognized and presented awards at the annual CLEMCC meeting during the 2015 IACP Annual Conference and Exposition in Chicago, Illinois.
