The VACP believes in the importance of mentors for law enforcement professionals. Connecting chiefs and others law enforcement leaders with others in similar positions is a component of our leadership programs and is also something we facilitate upon request or when a need is observed. 

If you are seeking mentorship or networking opportunities to guide you as you pursue your career as a law enforcement professional, we encourage you to become a member of the VACP. Our Active membership category is for all in command level positions in any Virginia law enforcement agency.  Our Associate membership category is for anyone in law enforcement at any level or in a law enforcement-related field or who simply supports law enforcement.
