The beginning of any newer police chief's administration can be crucial to achieving a successful transition and to building important relationships within the new agency and the community.
For this reason, the IACP Research Center Directorate Smaller Law Enforcement Agencies Technical Assistance Program has developed the New Police Chief Mentoring Project. With support from the Bureau of Justice Assistance, U.S. Department of Justice, the focus of our activities is to provide technical assistance to newer police leaders, in their first three years of appointment, who are serving in smaller and tribal departments (those serving a population up to 50,000).
IACP membership is not a requirement to participate in the Mentoring Project.
