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.
The mission of our Association is to assist its members and all law enforcement officers in the State of Rhode Island with the administration of public safety, to promote harmony and trust between law enforcement and the public, to enhance the effectiveness of law enforcement in the State, to strengthen public confidence in the police profession and to improve the quality of life in the communities we serve.
