How it works..



Step 1

Submit a request via Requests must come from a U.S. law enforcement agency and be authorized by the chief executive of the agency.

Step 2

An IACP staff member will contact the requestor and collect additional information.

Step 3

The CRI-TAC will assess the request and make a determination on type of TA to be delivered.

Step 4

The CRI-TAC will work with the agency and applicable partner organizations to develop a customized plan to include success metrics and follow up.


The IACP and COPS Office have partnered with other leading law enforcement associations to ensure the most comprehensive and tailored solutions available for requesting agencies.
