At the direction of President Viverettee, the IACP Constitution and Rules Committee will undertake a full review of the IACP Rules. This effort, which will be led by IACP Parliamentarian Chief Ed Mosca, follows the Constitutional review that took place in 2001. Currently, there are 35 Rules that govern the operation of the IACP and its many committees, sections and divisions. Such a review is long overdue and will allow us to adjust our operations to take advantage of new technologies and business practices which were not in place when many of these rules were originally adopted.

Once the Constitution and Rules Committee has completed its review, its recommendations will forwarded to the Executive Committee for consideration and approval. Unlike changes to the Articles of the IACP Constitution, which must be


approved by the membership, changes to the IACP Rules may be approved by the Executive Committee. For your information, a listing of the IACP Rules is provided below. If you have any questions, suggestions, or concerns about the rule review process, please contact Gene Voegtlin, Constitution and Rules Committee Staff Liaison at

1. Establishment of Headquarters 2. Conduct of Executive Committee and Board of Officers’ Meetings. 3. Membership Procedure 4. Code of Ethics 5. Conflicts of Interest 6. Budget Procedure 7.

The IACP is constantly releasing new publications, training aids, and reference materials for the use of both law enforcement officers and police chiefs. Below is a brief listing of a few of our most recent offerings. Your Vest Won't Stop This Bullet The Highway Safety Committee's Law Enforcement Stops and Safety Subcommittee (LESSS), in collaboration with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, released a 14-minute roll call training video, Your Vest Won't Stop This Bullet. The video is intended to encourage officers to be more cautious during traffic stops and other roadside contacts. IACP President Mary Ann Viverette is mailing this video, along with


Ford Motor Company's Trunk Packing Considerations, this week to each law enforcement agency that participates in the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting Program. To watch the video visit For more information contact Dick Ashton, Highway Safety Committee Staff Liaison at

Police Chiefs Desk Reference - CD Format Now Available The IACP New Police Chief Mentoring Project, funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance, provides new police executives with leadership and policy guidance as they begin their tenure. The project serves agencies of 25 or fewer sworn officers or those serving population sizes of 25,000 or less. Newer chiefs are provided with access to seasoned chiefs from similar-sized agencies to learn how they achieved success and resolved similar problems. This assistance includes written materials, guidance, and onsite visits when needed. A major component developed by the project is the Police Chiefs Desk Reference (PCDR) that includes sections on IACP resources, best practices guides, ethics, leadership, policy and procedures, funding, accreditation, and many other resource listings, summaries and web site referrals. The PCDR is now available in a CD format that includes active links to all the resources. There is no charge for the PCDR at this time. Agencies may request up to two copies and may duplicate the resource provided they provide proper citation. All requests for the PCDR are made on-line. Click here to request your copy.

Cutting Edge of Technology: "Digital Imaging for Safe Schools: A Public Safety Response to Critical Incidents" Working with the Arlington and Fairfax, Virginia school districts, the IACP's Cutting Edge of Technology Project completed a how to guide on employing digital images to help keep schools safer. The guide helps local law enforcement agencies construct virtual classrooms to be used during a critical incident. With the photos compiled from each school, first responders arriving on scene have access to school maps and floor plans either through the Internet or on a CD-ROM. They can then use the 360-degree images to ascertain trouble spots quickly and develop a tactical plan even before entering the


building. To read the report, click here. For more information, contact Al Arena at
