The Iowa Association of Chiefs of Police and Peace Officers became the first statewide organization to represent Law Enforcement Officer serving the State of Iowa in 1908. A.G. (John) Miller of the Des Moines Police Department became the first President.


From humble beginnings almost 105 years ago the "Chief's" Association has grown to become one of the largest professional Law Enforcement Associations in the state. We presently have approximately 1800 members or our organization. Our membership is open to "ALL" certified Peace Officers in the State of Iowa. Our membership includes City Officers of all ranks, Sheriffs and Deputies, State Troopers, IDOT Officers, Federal & State Agents from the FBI and DCI. Today we are known as the Iowa Peace Officers Association.

At the 2010 Conference in April, the members present voted to change the name of our association. The reason for this proposal from the Board had been explained in previous Iowa Law Enforcement Issue. We are now known as the: Iowa Peace Officers Association. We are very proud to have been known as the Iowa Chiefs of Police and Peace Officers Assn. for the past 104 years. The selection of our new name really represents who we are, Certified Peace Officers in Iowa from all branches of Law Enforcement. We do believe this was the right decision at the right time. We will continue to serve all of Iowa in our future efforts. Our Membership remains the same and includes Police Chiefs, Sheriffs, Officers, Deputies, State & Federal Officers from throughout Iowa.
