The Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) Office recently opened a competitive solicitation for the 2018 Community Policing Development (CPD) Program.  The CPD grant program is designed to advance the practice of community policing in law enforcement agencies through training and technical assistance, development of innovative community policing strategies, field-directed law enforcement microgrants, guidebooks, and best practices that are national in scope.  The COPS Office has designed the CPD solicitation to address critical topics in the law enforcement field by building on the principles of community policing.

Up to $10 million is available through this year's program, and all awards are subject to the availability of funds.  Applications are due by June 7, 2018, at 7:59 p.m., ET.
