Dedicated to Professionalism
Welcome to the I-PAC Website
To promote professionalism among Police Departments in Illinois and surrounding Midwestern States.
I-PAC is dedicated to law enforcement accreditation. Law Enforcement Accreditation demands accountability, professionalism and best practices.
CALEA® (Commission on Accreditation of Law Enforcement Agencies) Law Enforcement Accreditation is the Gold Standard. CALEA has accreditation programs for Law Enforcement Agencies (State, County, Municipal, University, etc.), Law Enforcement Communications Centers, Law Enforcement Training Academies, and Campus Security Agencies (non-sworn). I-PAC has member agencies accredited in all but Campus Security, since that program is relatively new. I-PAC's primary functions are to conduct mock assessments for member agencies, provide training and assistance, and provide feedback to CALEA® to assist in the continual improvement of CALEA® standards. I-PAC is currently one of the largest CALEA® PACs.
I-PAC also supports IACLEA (International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators) Accreditation and ILEAP (Illinois Law Enforcement Accreditation Program) Accreditation. I-PAC has member agencies accredited by IACLEA and ILEAP. I-PAC provides support and assistance to agencies considering accreditation, those in self-assessment, and those that are accredited.
We recognize and support accreditation of law enforcement agencies as a vital means to enhance the quality of law enforcement services. To this end, I-PAC provides a network for member agencies that encourages communication, mutual cooperation, support, and the sharing of valuable resources.
