Are you looking to make a difference? When you work for the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), you don’t just make a living, you make a difference by shaping the future of the policing profession. Is it easy? No. Is it worthwhile? Absolutely.
The IACP is the world’s largest and most influential professional association for police leaders. With more than 31,000 members in over 168 countries, the IACP is a recognized global leader in policing and is dedicated to enhancing the policing profession through new programmatic initiatives, advocacy, and excellent member services.
As a leadership association, the IACP starts with our members’ needs. We think strategically and assess constantly; cultivate good judgement and drive change.
The IACP seeks to hire a Project Coordinator to broadly support IACP efforts, and specifically support member engagement activities.
Member engagement staff works directly with elected and appointed member leaders to coordinate their efforts, establish connections across the association, and provide logistical support for standing committees, divisions, and sections of the IACP.
