In 1987, the International Associations of Chiefs of Police established the Policy Center. The objective of the center was to assist police agencies across the country in the critical and difficult task of developing and refining police policy.

Organized under the direction of a broad-based advisory board of recognized police professionals, the center has carried out its mission through the development of a wide variety of model police policies. Each policy document incorporates research findings, the input of leading subject experts, and the professional judgment of advisory board members who have combined this information with their extensive practical field and management experience. The end product is some of the best contemporary thinking in the field.

The policies addressed by the center are selected because they represent some of the most difficult issues facing police administrators. The policy center continues to develop models in other priority areas.
