Defense Chiefs of Police Section

The Defense Chiefs of Police Section (DCOPS) represents the unique interests of military and civilian law enforcement within the Defense establishments of IACP members. DCOPS promotes an exchange of information and develops standards for increasing the efficiency and capabilities of each law enforcement agency that provides service to our Military Services and Defense Agencies. While there is overlap with local, state, and federal policing, the unique needs of Defense law enforcement require a unique level of service, one that combines the culture of education with the tenets of crime prevention, security, and public order. The Section represents this perspective to the larger law enforcement community.

DCOPS held its first official meeting at the 117th IACP Annual Conference in 2010. The Section holds its annual meeting at the IACP Annual Conference and a mid-year meeting in the spring. Please see Section membership e-mails on latest information regarding upcoming meetings.
