The IACP would like to wish its members and all those in law enforcement a safe and happy New Year. With the new year comes resolutions, and this year, we’d like you to consider making IACP a part of your professional resolutions. Here are just a few ideas to help you make the most of 2017.
Connect: January is membership month! If you are already a member, this is a great time to renew your membership for 2017. If you have already renewed, consider sponsoring a new chief or encourage non-command level staff to become a member to begin developing the leaders of tomorrow. Not yet a member of IACP?

Participate: Start the year off right and register for the IACP 2017 Annual Conference and Exposition in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Take advantage of the unmatched educational programs and opportunity to network with thousands of other dedicated professionals. Also consider attending the annual Technology or Drug, Alcohol, and Impaired Driving conferences. Both provide forums in which to share best practices and lessons learned as well as opportunities to network with leading experts in the field.
Learn: The IACP holds countless trainings throughout the year. Consider registering for a training opportunity to learn more about the latest techniques and trends in the field. The IACP already has trainings events on a number of topics scheduled for 2017. Secure your spot today.
Advocate: Reach out to elected officials for their support on important issues affecting law enforcement. Take a look at the IACP’s policy priorities or critical issue messaging materials to best prepare yourself to advocate for the profession.
Succeed: IACP has a plethora of resources to help your agency be the best it can be. The IACP’s services include: management studies, executive searches, technical assistance, and police promotional testing.
