The IACP New Police Chief Mentoring Project is a cost-free professional development opportunity and includes complimentary resources to assist experienced and newer chiefs. This project matches experienced mentor chiefs with newer chiefs for three to six months of formal or informal mentoring, supported by the Mentoring Project team. This is a valuable opportunity that helps to connect smaller and tribal police executives to meet the unique challenges they face.
The Discover Policing Mentoring Center is the home of our online database which allows participants to register as mentors or mentees, search for mentors that meet their needs, and contact potential matches directly. The program began by serving only chiefs from smaller law enforcement agencies, but with the new online system, all ranks and agency types are welcome to apply.
