Our Mission

To promote professionalism among Police Departments in Illinois and surrounding Midwestern States.


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.

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.
