As a membership organization, IACP’s success depends heavily on the contributions of its members. Over the years, we have been fortunate to have a very active membership of committed volunteers who have helped make IACP the world-class organization it is today. Few, however, can match the contributions of Chief McEwen, who will be stepping down as chair of the IACP Communications and Technology Committee at the IACP Annual Conference and Exposition in Chicago, Illinois, this month (October 2015). His contributions have helped enhance the standing of IACP as the voice of law enforcement and will continue to have a positive impact on public safety for decades to come.
