IACP Resolutions Adopted at 2004 Conference

The IACP membership considered and voted to accept 13 resolutions on Tuesday, November 16, 2004, during the second general assembly at the 111th Annual IACP Conference in Los Angeles, California. Following is a summary of these resolutions. The complete resolutions are on the IACP Web site at www.theiacp.org For more information, call Jennifer Boyter at 800-THE-IACP, extension 226, or write to her at boyter@theiacp.org

In Support of Community Safety
The resolution recognizes that the prevention of crime is fundamental to a free society and reaffirms the IACP’s belief that community safety is everybody’s responsibility and crime prevention is everyone’s business.

National Crime Prevention Strategy
The resolution reaffirms the IACP’s commitment to forming partnerships with organizations involved in crime prevention to develop and enhance national crime prevention strategies.

Support for Inclusion of Law EnforcementAgencies in Proposals Designed to Improve National Intelligence Capabilities
The resolution affirms the need for a dramatic increase in the capabilities for gathering and sharing of intelligence between and among all levels of law enforcement and the private sector. To that effect, it calls on the IACP Executive Committee and staff to monitor the developments in the intelligence arena and oppose any proposals that do not include the considerations and needs of law enforcement. It also calls on the IACP to present the findings of the IACP Criminal Intelligence Sharing Summit and the products of the Global Intelligence Working Group to government forums addressing the collection, analysis, and dissemination of intelligence.

Law Enforcement Assistance Funding
The resolution decries the recent reductions in vital state and local law enforcement programs at both the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security. It states the IACP’s belief that these reductions have the potential to leave law enforcement agencies critically underfunded and understaffed, thereby significantly reducing their ability to fulfill their mission of protecting their communities and the citizens they serve from both crime and terrorism. Consequently, it urges the administration and members of Congress to support efforts to ensure that these critical law enforcement programs are funded at levels sufficient to meet the critical and pressing needs of the law enforcement community.

Pseudoephedrine Blister Packs
The resolution endorses new legislation to close a loophole in federal law that allows illegal drug producers to purchase large quantities of the cold and allergy drug pseudoephedrine, which is often used in the manufacture of methamphetamine. The IACP supports subjecting blister pack pseudoephedrine to regulatory controls that require documentation of sales; requiring the placement of pseudoephedrine products behind the pharmacist counter; and requiring that sales be limited to nine grams per purchase.

Support for Continued Byrne Grant Funding
The resolution directs the IACP to strongly urge Congress to increase the funding levels for the Byrne Memorial Grant Program. It also urges the Department of Homeland Security to increase funding to state and local law enforcement in support of investigations that support the connection between drug trafficking and terrorism.

Support for Legislation, Research, and Training on Drug-Impaired Driving
The resolution urges Congress to develop drugged-driving legislation, with a mandatory provision that a person operating a motor vehicle with any detectable amount of a controlled substance present in the person’s system can be charged with drug-impaired driving. It also urges that the legislation provide for programs that support and enhance officer training and use of drug recognition techniques, and provide funding for technology that enables officers to test for alcohol and controlled substances in the field.

Support for Enhancements to Internet Prescription Drug Legislation
To help combat nonmedical use of addictive prescription drugs, the resolution directs the IACP to support federal Internet pharmacy legislation that would increase regulation of Internet pharmacies.

Support of Emergency Helicopter Landing Facilities
The resolution affirms the IACP’s support of the concept of emergency helicopter landing facilities for high-rise structures, in order to allow safer operating environments by providing planned, cleared landing areas for helicopters that assist ground personnel during high-rise emergencies.

Anti-Drug Legalization Update
The resolution reaffirms the IACP’s opposition to laws and initiatives that advocate the medical use of marijuana, since they are inconsistent with established scientific and medical protocols for determining the medical value of dangerous drugs. It also directs the IACP to strongly support public awareness efforts by several federal agencies that seek to dispel the myths that medical marijuana has beneficial worth when used for medicinal purposes and that it is not harmful in recreational use. In addition, it urges state and local law enforcement agencies to become involved as anti-drug legalization advocates.

Drug Endangered Children Protection Program
The resolution urges the creating of multidisciplinary groups of law enforcement officers, prosecutors, public health professionals, and social workers to address the welfare of children endangered by drugs. It also urges Congress to provide funding to the National Association for Drug Endangered Children for additional research and studies.

Support for Unified Prescription Monitoring System
To help prevent prescription drug abuse, the resolution expresses the IACP’s support for a uniform prescription-monitoring program to increase the program’s effectiveness and to provide for the sharing of data and findings. It also urges Congress to provide adequate resources to enhance statewide programs to ensure that each state has automated data collection and analysis capabilities and to assist with the development of a national database to facilitate intelligence and data sharing.

Telecommunications Interception Techniques
The resolution directs the IACP to strongly support amendments to the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA) to address the current shortcomings in the implementation and enforcement of the law. In addition, it calls for the enforcement of CALEA provisions to be moved to the Department of Justice from the Federal Communications Commission.
