For this week’s IACP 2014 Education blog series, we are featuring the Smaller Agency Certificate Track. Look for this icon on our conference website and app to indicate workshops from this track.
If you are a police executive in a department serving an area with 50,000 or fewer residents, come to IACP 2014 from October 25 through October 28! Since 2001, the Smaller Agency Certificate Track has provided guidance in distinctive challenges facing executives of smaller police departments, like in these two sessions:
