Breaking News: In a recently published statement by International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), the IACP 2021 Annual Conference has been canceled.

However, the virtual event will continue as planned, but there will be no in-person portion of the annual conference or expo hall/show.

Complete statement from the recent IACP cancellation announcement:

IACP Message Regarding Hurricane Ida

As promised, we have another update on the IACP 2021 Annual Conference and Exposition.

Given Hurricane Ida’s impact on the gulf coast of the United States, and specifically the devastation in, and around, New Orleans, it is necessary to cancel the in-person portion of the Annual Conference.

The City of New Orleans, and the State of Louisiana, have been declared federal disaster areas and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has declared that a public health emergency exists in Louisiana. These realities, coupled with the fact that the New Orleans Police Department is wholly focused on protecting the health, safety, and welfare of the residents of New Orleans, made holding a conference the size and magnitude of IACP 2021 impracticable.

We recognize that this news is disappointing. Like all of you, we were looking forward to convening in person, networking, and learning together. However, we are pleased to say that the IACP 2021 virtual event will continue as planned, however all events will now be on Eastern Daylight Time (EDT).

Confirmation emails with a link to the online event platform will be sent to all online attendees no later than September 10, 2021. If you do not receive your email, please contact: annualconference@theIACP.org

We look forward to seeing you online.
