Incorporated in 1962, the GACP has grown in membership, influence and professionalism to become one of the most respected law enforcement associations in the state. It is the largest professional association for law enforcement administrators in Georgia, and one of the largest in the country.
The association’s goals are to promote cooperative, professional relationships throughout the state, to evaluate the standards of police institutions and the profession, to offer quality training and continuing education for administrators, and to provide opportunities for police executives to exchange information and experiences.
Based in Atlanta, Georgia, the GACP is managed by a governing board consisting of seven officers and 22 district representatives representing all areas of the state. GACP has an experienced former Georgia police chief serving as Executive Director.
