Legislative Alert: Attorney General Jeff Sessions Attends 2017 IACP Division Midyear Meeting

The IACP State and Provincial Police (S&P), State Associations of Chiefs of Police (SACOP), and Midsize Agencies (MSA) divisions recently held their midyear meetings together in Litchfield Park, Arizona, drawing just under 200 attendees who came together to discuss critical issues facing their agencies. The meeting kicked off with a town hall led by President Donald W. De Lucca and Deputy Executive Director Terrence Cunningham. The Arizona town hall was the inaugural stop on IACP’s 2017 listening tour. Since then, President De Lucca and IACP leadership have also traveled to California and Illinois to hear directly from law enforcement leaders about the challenges confronting their respective agencies and the collective profession—and how IACP can assist on both fronts. The IACP conducted a similar listening tour in 2016 in eight locations throughout the United States, where we heard from more than 450 police leaders. The IACP issued a report after those listening sessions that outlined the core issues confronting the profession.
