The IACP is committed to utilizing the knowledge of current and former BCJI leaders, creating resources, and sharing them with the community to address high-crime areas. The IACP and UC will also provide comprehensive TTA services to support community leaders and their law enforcement partners, promoting coordination between community-based crime prevention and enforcement strategies and building trust.
