United States: Over 120 ICITAP Representatives with Police Delegates from 17 Countries Participate in Dynamic IACP 2022 Conference

From October 14 to 19, over 120 ICITAP and international police delegates representing 17 countries participated in the dynamic annual International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) Conference in Dallas, Texas. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL), the Bureau of Counterterrorism (CT), and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), police delegates supported by ICITAP came from the countries of Albania, Bangladesh, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Honduras, Indonesia, Kenya, Kosovo, Montenegro, Nepal, North Macedonia, Panama, Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, and Sri Lanka. With guidance from ICITAP, the international police delegates had access to uniquely productive and powerful discussions with U.S and international colleagues. Topics ranged from building public trust, human rights, counter terrorism, women peace and security, technology, and good police practices. Observations by delegates were overwhelmingly positive and appreciative about what they learned and could be brought home to adapt and emulate. In a word, many delegates said they felt “honored” to be selected and participate. Attended by more than 16,000 public safety professionals, the three tenets of the IACP conference are training, networking, and exhibit hall education. There were more than 175 educational workshops and the exposition hall featured more than 600 companies showcasing relevant products and services. The conference is a consistently reliable, interactive event where police learn new techniques, advance their knowledge and careers, and equip their departments for ongoing success. With 32,000 members in over 170 countries, the IACP is the world’s largest professional association for police leaders. All ICITAP attendees are now members of the IACP and IACP International Managers of Police Academy and College Training (IMPACT) Section.
