Private Sector Liaison Committee

This committee is composed of representative members from all facets of the private security sector and the law enforcement community. The role of the committee is to strive to improve the relationship between the private sector and public sector by the discussion and dissemination of meaningful data on a continuing basis.

Public Private Partnerships: What Every Chief Needs to Know
The Private Sector Liaison Committee recently completed a brochure highlighting the importance of establishing relationships between law enforcement and the private sector to address public safety concerns and crime in their community. The brochure includes suggestions for creating public-private relationships in your community and examples of how other communities across the country have used these relationships to start effective programs which address public safety and crime. The Public Private Partnerships brochure will be made available on the IACP website as a PDF file for download and printing.
