About us

The Miami-Dade County Association of Chiefs of Police is a premier member organization; the purpose of which is to promote efficient law enforcement services through the cooperation and coordination of all law enforcement agencies and our public safety stakeholders throughout Miami-Dade County.

MDCACP serves municipal police departments, Miami-Dade Corrections, College and University Police, private businesses and security firms, as well as federal and state law enforcement agencies. 


In 1937, a group of Dade County Chiefs formed a corporation, now known as the Miami Dade County Association of Chiefs of Police. The original 20 members set up their guidelines and recommendations for the positive furtherance of policing in Dade County.

Our Dade Chiefs' "founding fathers" had the foresight to set up the association in a manner that was fair and unbiased, with the intent of a long-lasting entity. While creating the bylaws of the organization, they realized to have a cohesive transformation of leadership a series of chairs was needed.
