Police Psychological Services Section

Police Psychological Services Section

The Section offers psychological solutions to the problems faced by police agencies in the areas of personnel assessment, individual as well as organizational intervention, consultation and operational assistance.


The Police Psychological Services Section of the IACP acts as a resource to the Association on psychologically-related issues in assessment, counseling, consultation and operational assistance. The Section provides continuing education and training to the Association and its members to further ethical and empirically-based practices, and develops and maintains a set of current guidelines for the Association's members as a resource for commonly encountered police psychological activities.

For more information, please contact the IACP Member Engagement Team.
