Defense Chiefs of Police Section
The Defense Chiefs of Police Section represents the unique interests of military and civilian law enforcement within the Defense establishments of IACP members. The Defense Chiefs of Police Section promotes an exchange of information and develops standards for increasing the efficiency and capabilities of each law enforcement agency that provides service to our Military Services and Defense Agencies. While there is overlap with local, state, and federal policing, the unique needs of Defense law enforcement require a unique level of service, one that combines the culture of education with the tenets of crime prevention, security, and public order. The Section represents this perspective to the larger law enforcement community.
The mission of this section is to allow its members to develop and promote professional relationships among its members and the IACP, and to increase the efficiency and capabilities of each law enforcement agency that provides service to a Military Service and Defense Agencies. This will be accomplished by providing educational opportunities, training, promoting effective leadership, sharing information, and mentoring our future leaders.
Section membership is open to individuals* who are now, or have been, engaged in or responsible for providing law enforcement services within their respective government’s Military Services or Defense Agencies. Section members will promote and develop beneficial relationships with each other, the IACP, the private sector, and our individual communities. *(Provost Marshal, Security Chief, Security Forces Chief, Chief of Police, Chief of Security, Director of Public Safety, Director of Emergency Services and Deputies of the same)
