The Decatur Police Department will receive national recognition from the United States
Department of Justice as a 2018 winner in the Community Policing in Action Photo Contest.
The competition, sponsored by the Community Oriented Policing Services division of the Department of Justice, encourages law enforcement agencies across the United States to showcase their interactions with the individuals they serve.
The Decatur Police Department submitted a photo of Safety Education Officer Heather Atchley using sidewalk chalk with Decatur High School students, as they wrote messages related to Teen Driver Safety Week.
“Our officers place great importance on getting to know the residents of Decatur – from all ages, backgrounds and neighborhoods,” said Police Chief Nate Allen. “Officer Atchley’s safety programs show the direct impact of community policing. This photo expresses the community-officer relationship in a way no words can explain.”
The image will be featured on the home page of the Community Oriented Policing Services website, Facebook and Twitter and highlighted along with departmental information in the COPS e-newsletter – The CP Dispatch.
