The IACP's Leadership in Victim Services Award, honors law enforcement agencies that demonstrate excellence in providing innovative service to crime victims by successfully integrating current best practices of enhanced victim response into all facets of their organizations. The award recognizes agencies that best exemplify an organizational philosophy of placing victims at the center of their problem-solving efforts, utilizing effective partnerships, training methods, and performance monitoring tools to enhance response to victims of crime.

Law enforcement agencies worldwide (private corporations or individuals are excluded) can compete for the award by demonstrating that an innovative approach in meeting the needs of crime victims within their communities has been created, and has either been or is in the process of being fully implemented into the agency. Annually, three awards will be given, one for each agency category: small, medium and large, determined by the number of sworn officers within the department.
