The Department received the 2017 Law Enforcement Challenge First Place Award (for a municipality with 61-125 officers) and the 2017 Law Enforcement Occupancy Protection Award.

Additionally, an evaluation of the outcomes of the efforts are considered.
James City County Police Department takes pride in its numerous efforts to promote traffic safety, and these awards are reflective of that.
