IACP Leadership Approves Proposed Constitutional Amendments; Adopts Revised Alarm Management Policy


At its recent meetings in Vancouver, BC, the IACP Executive Committee approved two amendments to the IACP Constitution that will be considered by the Membership at the upcoming annual conference in Chicago.


The proposed amendments, which were developed by the IACP Ad Hoc Committee on Elections, and reviewed and approved by the IACP Executive Committee, would modify the IACP Constitution in two ways.


1. The Constitution would be amended to remove the restriction that eligible IACP members must be present at the annual conference to vote for IACP Constitutional Officers.

2. The Constitution would be amended to provide for the automatic succession of duly elected IACP Vice Presidents to the IACP Presidency.


In the weeks ahead, additional information about the proposed amendments will be mailed to all IACP members, posted on the IACP web site and published in Police Chief Magazine.


In order to be adopted, a proposed amendment to the IACP Constitution must receive the affirmative vote of two-thirds of the membership present and voting during the annual conference. Voting on proposed amendments will take place on Monday, October 24th. The polling booths will open at 8:00 a.m. and close at 4:00 p.m.
