The International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), founded in 1893, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing professional police services, promoting enhanced administrative, technical, and operational police practices, and fostering cooperation and the exchange of information and experience among police leaders and police organizations of recognized professional and technical standing throughout the world. The IACP is the world's oldest and largest law enforcement leadership organization, with more than 20,000 members in more than 100 countries.
The IACP's Improving Law Enforcement Responses to Youth Training and Technical Assistance Program, funded by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice, focuses on increasing the capacity of law enforcement and justice professionals to address juvenile crime, delinquency, and victimization. The program includes the Youth Focused Policing Resource Center, a clearinghouse of information designed to help law enforcement deliver effective services to youth within their communities.
In October 2013, the IACP added a Youth Program Impact Toolkit to its Youth Focused Policing (YFP) Resource Center. Due to limited budgets and resources, law enforcement agencies have shown a growing interest in demonstrating the effectiveness of their youth programs. While evaluation is an important step to determine a program’s effectiveness, many police departments lack the data needed to begin the evaluation process. As a result, the IACP developed the Toolkit as a user-friendly way to help agencies measure the impact of their youth programs.
The Toolkit contains resources for law enforcement agencies to identify youth-specific problems in their jurisdictions, articulate program goals and activities, and measure program outcomes. Specifically, the Toolkit includes an overview of the impact evaluation process, an eight-step guide for impact evaluation, sample diagrams for five types of youth programs, and a customizable evaluation template to organize and keep track of program information.
