Welcome to the Rhode Island Police Chiefs’ Association website.  Our Association was established in 1950 and is comprised of more than one-hundred members; including active and retired police chiefs, and associate members – representing nearly fifty municipal, state and campus agencies that serve more than one-million Rhode Islanders living in communities across the Ocean State.

The  Rhode  Island  Police  Chiefs’ Association has been – and will  continue to  be – committed  in  its  pursuit  of excellence  as  we  strive  to  work  closer with citizens  and community  partners alike  in  an  ongoing  effort  to  form sustaining foundations for safe and secure communities;  foundations  formed  to endure  socioeconomic  instability  and variations in crime rates.  Our active engagement on issues of public safety policy and legislation will help shape the future of law enforcement, and strengthen trust and respect of the policing profession.
