Description: Community Policing Development (CPD) funds are used to advance the practice of community policing in law enforcement agencies through training and technical assistance, demonstration projects, the development of innovative community policing strategies, guidebooks, and promising practices that are national in scope and responsive to the solicitation topic requirements. The 2020 CPD program will fund projects that develop knowledge, increase awareness of effective community policing strategies, increase the skills and abilities of law enforcement and community partners, increase the number of law enforcement agencies and relevant stakeholders using proven community policing practices and institutionalize community policing practice in routine business. The COPS Office, a federal provider of innovative, customer-focused resources that address the continuing and emerging needs of those engaged in enhancing public safety through community policing, has designed the CPD solicitation to address critical topics in the law enforcement field by building on the principles of community policing. The 2020 CPD program has been established to fund specific projects related to the following topic areas: (1) Law Enforcement Injury Prevention and Rehabilitation Program Toolkit; (2) Recruiting the Next Generation of Officers and Deputies; (3) Promising Practices in Law Enforcement Victim Support; (4) Rural Law Enforcement Training Center; (5) Managing High-Risk Law Enforcement Vehicular Pursuits; (6) Implementing Successful Faith-Based Partnerships; (7) Police Academy Innovations; (8) Public Safety Implications of Driving Automation Systems for Motor Vehicles; (9) Open Category; and (10) Invitational Applications. Detailed descriptions of each of these topics are available in the application guide. There is up to $5,600,000 million in CPD funds available. All awards are subject to the availability of appropriated funds and any modifications or additional requirements that may be imposed by law. Funding is limited, and it is expected that this solicitation will be very competitive. Each award or cooperative agreement is two years (24 months) in length. There is no local match. Each award will be in the form of a cooperative agreement, the funding instrument used for substantial federal involvement.
