Since its formation in 1893, the International Association of Chiefs of Police has met annually to share insight, learn about promising practices, and discuss up-and-coming technology. Each year thousands of law enforcement executives come together to continue this tradition by attending training sessions, networking with peers, and exploring the state-of-the-art Exhibit Hall.
Over 200 education sessions are offered to attendees. Law enforcement executives present on current issues and trends while sharing lessons learned. Topics from past conferences include, but are not limited to, strategies for leading change in police culture, how to survive a vote of no-confidence, online learning and operational support, public law enforcement and private security collaboration, violent crime, use-of-force issues, training, and case studies.
IACP assembles the newest products and the latest technologies at the largest exposition designed specifically for law enforcement. More than 750 companies showcase their products and services geared towards law enforcement. The following six pavilions showcase all department needs: Communication/IT; Vehicles/Accessories; Weapons and Tactical/Protective Equipment; Administration and Training; Forensic/Investigation; Personal Equipment (includes uniforms, badges, footwear, etc).

Building on our past success, the IACP addresses cutting edge issues confronting law enforcement though advocacy, programs and research, as well as training and other professional services.
