I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting the website of the Louisiana Association of Chiefs of Police (“LACP”). Our Association serves over 350 municipal police departments across the State of Louisiana. Our purpose is to provide a voice for municipal police departments in important arenas, including the Louisiana Legislature. We also provide state of the art training, instruction and education in the most current law enforcement related State and federal legislation, operational and tactical methodology, and law enforcement technology.
Founded in 1966, we have evolved over the last 45 years into a tenacious advocate for Louisiana’s Chiefs of Police. Our staff of professionals provides the Association with the experience and credibility needed to advance the goals of LACP. Working in concert with the Louisiana Sheriffs Association and the Louisiana State Troopers Association, LACP strives to advance law enforcement related legislation in order to improve public safety, police wages and benefits and to ensure that police throughout the State have access to the equipment, expertise and training that they need to make Louisiana a safer place to work, live and raise a family.
LACP offers this website, not only to its members, but to the public as well, in order to provide important information related to LACP activities including a calendar of events, contact information for our staff and board of directors, ready access to pertinent provisions of Louisiana law, current and historic information concerning acts of the Louisiana Legislature, as well as membership information and application forms. Many of the forms needed by law enforcement agencies can be found in our Resources library which is continuously updated. Information regarding continuing education requirements for Chiefs of Police can be found on the website as well as references to opportunities, dates and locations for obtaining continuing education. All visitors to our website are encouraged to suggest additional content which would be beneficial to site users.
Although LACP is primarily designed to serve and benefit Louisiana’s municipal police chiefs, the Association welcomes the opportunity to assist the public. Persons or businesses who would like to support LACP and those who supply good and services to law enforcement agencies are eligible to become Associate Members of the Association. We welcome Associate Member applicants and encourage you to consider joining our Association. Qualified Associate Members are eligible to participate in the exhibition/vendor portion of the Association’s Annual Meeting, as well as our Mid-Year and Fall conferences. Please check out the Associate Membership section of our Website!
Thank you for your interest in LACP and for your support of law enforcement. We hope you enjoy your visit to our Website and that you will be a frequent visitor. We hope, too, that if you are not a Member or Associate Member of LACP, you will consider joining our Association. We are confident that you will enjoy and benefit from membership.
