Introduction by Chief Steven Casstevens IACP President

"It goes without saying that the world is facing the toughest battle many of us have witnessed in our lifetimes. With information, policies, and guidance rapidly evolving, the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) impacts the lifeblood of every community.

The IACP stands ready to ensure its members have the tools and resources needed to keep you, your officers, and your communities safe as you deal with emerging issues like the spread of COVID-19. As the number of COVID-19 cases across the globe increases, agencies must have the proper knowledge and resources to maintain a healthy workforce as officers continue to serve their communities on the front lines of the pandemic response.

To that end, the IACP has launched a centralized clearinghouse of resources related to COVID-19 to provide you with the most up-to-date information available, including a collection of global resources for our members worldwide.

In this insert, you will find a snapshot of these resources, including the following:

  • COVID-19 Information for Law Enforcement: General Fact Sheet
  • COVID-19: Staying Healthy as a Police Officer
  • Organizational Readiness: Ensuring Your Agency is Prepared for COVID-19
  • COVID-19: Health and Safety for Law Enforcement Families
  • COVID-19: Law Enforcement’s Role in Enforcing Public Health Protections
