The Police Community Relations Awards (PCRA) was established in 1979 to express the community's appreciation to Police Officers who have made outstanding contributions to the improvement of police-community relations. PCRA encourages Officers in their daily performance to further the understanding of the joint role of citizens and police in promoting public safety and fighting crime. It rewards Officers who have advanced creative solution to neighborhood problems; demonstrated extraordinary effects in the area of crime prevention; and their involvement in helping neighborhoods handle special needs or problems.

Nominations for the Police Community Relations Awards are ongoing, if you would like to nominate an Officer, Team and/or School Resource Officer for the  2018 Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Community Relations Award click here.
