Free 10-Week School of Police Staff and Command Coming to Gulf Region

Major General Joseph C. Carter, Adjutant General, Massachusetts National Guard; and Chair, IACP Foundation

he IACP Foundation is proud to announce a continuing partnership with Northwestern University’s Center for Public Safety (NUCPS) in providing high-caliber leadership training to law enforcement officers across the United States.

In honor of IACP president Russell B. Laine’s term in office, NUCPS has graciously donated to the IACP Foundation a full program of its renowned 10-week School of Police Staff and Command (SPSC), to be hosted by and administered at the Louisiana State Police Training Academy in Baton Rouge beginning Monday, August 24, and concluding Friday, October 30, 2009.

The course is intended to serve police and sheriff’s agencies in the Gulf region. Under the terms of this donation, NUCPS will absorb 100 percent of the operational and instructional costs for the 10-week course. However, attendees will still need to pay for housing if they choose to stay on campus at the academy and will also need to pay for a meal plan if they choose to eat there as well.

Giving Back

The IACP Foundation is both grateful to NUCPS for its continued commitment to the advancement of professional policing and pleased to return some measure of thanks to the law enforcement agencies of the Gulf region who participated in the planning and execution of the 2007 annual IACP conference, held in New Orleans.

The Foundation welcomes participation from any agency in the Gulf region. As part of the Foundation’s commitment to professional development and no-cost training, this program is meant to provide instruction to agencies that would otherwise be unable to send officers due to cost or travel restrictions.

The IACP Foundation is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization established to solicit, receive, administer, and expend funds for law enforcement–related charitable and educational purposes. Donations may be tax deductible; please check with your personal tax adviser. The foundation’s federal tax ID number is 54-1576762.

It is a privilege for the IACP Foundation and NUCPS to be able to serve the needs of today’s law enforcement leaders.

Please note the logistics and details regarding this program in the box below. ■
