The International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) based in Virginia, USA has announced its 2006 Webber Seavey Award Finalists and Semi-Finalists.
The Webber Seavey Award for Quality in Law Enforcement promotes and recognizes quality performance by agencies around the globe. The award is named after Chief of Police Webber S. Seavey, the first president of the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP). Seavey exemplified the dedication to the profession and problem-solving that this award honors. The award is presented annually at the International Association of Police Chief Conference to agencies that have implemented an innovative project focused on enhancing quality in law enforcement. This award allows agencies to exchange and share ideas and solutions with others public safety agencies.
Two initiatives launched by the police in Andhra Pradesh, India, have won recognition from IACP, and have been selected as Finalists for the award. One of the initiatives, Project Aasara, is an anti-trafficking program which aims to check trafficking in women and rehabilitation of women rescued from brothels.
