Policy Councils are designed to facilitate communication, cooperation, and coordination among the Committees and Sections of the IACP. Policy Councils are intended to serve as a forum for members of the IACP to collaborate on issues of importance to the law enforcement profession in a timely, focused, and flexible manner. A Policy Council is a group of like-topic committees and sections working together for the good of the Association. Each Policy Council is chaired by a member of the IACP Executive Board. Board leadership ensures that the activities of the councils are coordinated and aligned with the overall direction and strategic priorities of the Association.
