In light of the pandemic and associated travel and distancing restrictions, the New York State Association of Chiefs of Police regrets to announce that the 2020 conference has been cancelled. Executive Director Michael Geraci said, “This is a time when we would prefer to assemble in order to discuss public safety priorities, but the current public health situation does not appear that it will be adequately resolved for our members to meet in July.” Chief of Police Patrick Phelan, President of the Association noted that this cancellation is historic. “In the 120 year history of our proud organization, the only other time we cancelled our annual conference was during World War I.” The conference is the premier training event for New York State law enforcement executives featuring renowned speakers and presenters on contemporary topics in public safety.

For those members who have already submitted their registration fee, we will begin processing refunds over the next couple of days.  Please send any conference related questions to [email protected].
