Global Reach

Global Reach

International perspective is vitally important to all law enforcement leaders and IACP helps facilitate the sharing of that perspective through a number of forums. Through relationships with other international organizations, the IACP's members turn to each other to answer questions of global relevance.

Global Policing Leadership

The Board of Directors of the IACP established the Global Policing Division, a body consisting of world regions, to promulgate the international programs and activities of the IACP. The International Vice President serves as the General Chair of the Division as well as a member of the IACP Executive Board. Division Officers include the Division Vice Chair, Division Secretary and the Chairs of seven (7) World Regional Offices. 

International Policing Division Steering Committee (IPDSC)

The International Policing Division Steering Committee (IPDSC) is designed to advise the International Vice President and in turn the IACP President on matters which impact the IACP internationally. The Steering Committee has forty-three (43) positions, nineteen (19) of which are designated by position, and the other twenty-four (24) are appointed. Among these appointed positions are nineteen (19) National/Transnational Police Organizations, which affiliate themselves with IACP by taking a seat on the IPDSC. The IPDSC meets at the annual IACP conference.

Advisory Committee to the IPDSC

The Advisory Committee, an international group of IACP members from the Washington DC area, was established to address issues of policy and procedure in support of the International Policing Division Steering Committee, facilitated by their proximity to the necessary resources and materials at the headquarters IACP. The Advisory Committee meets once a quarter, hosted on a rotational basis by individual committee members.
