The annual IACP/T-Mobile 40 Under 40 Award recognizes 40 law enforcement professionals under the age of 40 from around the world who demonstrate leadership, exemplify commitment to their profession, and have a positive impact on their communities and the field of policing.
The professionals chosen as the 2022 40 Under 40 awardees represent the rising leaders of policing, regardless of rank. They serve their agencies and communities with excellence, whether they are civilian staff, line officers, supervisors, or chiefs of police. This year’s class represents every element of policing—patrol officers, investigators, command staff, PIOs, school resource officers, researchers, training coordinators, community engagement officers, and more. They serve communities around the globe, representing law enforcement from seven countries across four continents. Their home agencies range from small, local police departments to large national police agencies, and include every size or type in between.
These extraordinary individuals are motivated to lead their agencies into the future, and they encourage colleagues to grow professionally and personally, striving daily to provide best-of-class services that lead to a safer, more inclusive, and more peaceful world. Regardless of role, rank, or agency, these professionals have dedicated their efforts to raising the bar for policing, and they serve as role models to those they work with and the community members they serve each day.
The members of the 2022 40 Under 40 cadre each bring their own talents, personalities, and motivations to the policing profession, but they all share important characteristics—the spirit of collaboration, the drive to help others, innovation and creativity, leadership, and the desire to make a difference in their communities and profession.
Each winner was chosen for his or her demonstration of strong values, leadership capability, and commitment to the law enforcement field. They emit positivity, compassion, and energy, despite the challenging circumstances that all law enforcement personnel face. They provide training and mentorship for others, develop more effective methodologies for their agencies, and drive advancements in technology and policy. The awardees consistently show their dedication to their communities through community service, outreach, and education, going beyond their roles in the law enforcement field to make the world a better, safer place for their loved ones, the public, and future generations.
The IACP and T-Mobile are proud to recognize these law enforcement professionals through the 2022 40 Under 40 award.
