Chief Jed Dolnick

Welcome to the website of the Wisconsin Chiefs of Police Association. The WCPA and its educational foundation, the Wisconsin Police Leadership Foundation, provide professional training and legislative support for over 400 Wisconsin police chiefs.

The Wisconsin law enforcement professions are recognized nationally for superior training, ethics, and professionalism. The WCPA has supported these achievements since it was founded in 1907. In recent years, our winter and summer conferences have evolved into premier police training events, attracting chiefs and their command officers. The WCPA is strengthened by the participation of state and federal agency representatives on its Board of Directors as consulting members. We also collaborate with Wisconsin's sheriffs and fire chiefs on matters of mutual interest.

The Wisconsin Chiefs of Police Association is able to provide superior service thanks to the efforts of its staff and enthusiastic membership.

Thank you for visiting our web page.
