If you are a law enforcement leader who is not currently a member, we strongly encourage you to join and take advantage of all the association has to offer. For those of you who are already a member, please take advantage of the many benefits supported on our site like access to sample policies, the state accreditation program, etc.
Since our association was formed in 1970, it has served as a catalyst for the advancement of professional law enforcement throughout our state. In addition to promoting personal and professional development for our law enforcement leaders, the association provides world class training to our members, a unique forum for law enforcement leaders to collaborate and share ideas, and serves as a conduit to work with our legislature in the shaping of legislative initiatives and poicy. Our association is one of the most respected in the country with over 1000 members including active, retired, and corporate members.
