The International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) is a 501(c)(3)
nonprofit organization. It was established on May 1893 through a meeting of 47
Chiefs of Police from cities in the United States. At the meeting, the
organization was founded as the National Chiefs of Police Union. The founders of
the organization sought to establish a central police bureau to improve
detection and prevention of crime in the United States as well as to foster an
exchange of ideas and information related to law enforcement
Its mission is to advance and promote the law enforcement profession, protect the safety of law enforcement officers drawing on the expertise and experiences of its membership and professional staff, address issues confronting law enforcement through advocacy, programs, research, and training."
