Since 1893, the International Association of Chiefs of Police, sponsor of the Public Safety Broadband Forum, has been serving the needs of the law enforcement community. Throughout those past 100- plus years, the IACP has been launching historically acclaimed programs, conducting ground-breaking research and providing exemplary programs and services to its membership across the globe.
The IACP’s goals are to disseminate improved administrative, technical and operational practices and promote their use in police work; to foster police cooperation and the exchange of information and experience among police administrators throughout the world; to bring about recruitment and training in the police profession of qualified persons; and to encourage adherence of all police officers to high professional standards of performance and conduct.
Professionally recognized programs such as the FBI Identification Division and the Uniform Crime Records system can trace their origins back to the IACP. From spearheading national use of fingerprint identification to partnering in a consortium on community policing to gathering top experts in criminal justice, the government and education for summits on violence, homicide, and youth violence, IACP has realized its responsibility to positively affect the goals of law enforcement.
