Delegate Information



We do hope you'll make plans to attend the Valor Awards Banquet on Tuesday night, which is included in your conference registration fee.  This is the event where we set aside some time to honor our Virginia law enforcement officers who, in the line of duty, perform some act of extraordinary heroism while engaged with an adversary at imminent personal risk.  The Award for Valor is the highest honor that the VACP bestows and the young officers that we recognize each year all have incredible, moving stories.  The banquet is always a nice event and a great way to let our Virginia officers know how much we appreciate them and their sacrifices.

Conference Registration:

Registration is not currently open. Email Audrey Altovilla at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) to be added to a notice list.


Cancellation Policy:
Conference registrations cancelled on or after TBD are non-refundable. Unfortuantely, this also applies to any unforseen emergency. The VACP must provide a headcount for attendees and it cannot be reduced after this date, therefore the VACP will still incur charges regardless of the registrant's attendance. If a registrant is unable to attend and the deadline has passed for a refundable cancellation, we will accept an alternate attendee from the same agency in their place.
