The Midsize Agencies Section (MAS) was formalized and approved by the IACP Board of Officers in January 2010 and held its first official meeting at the 2010 IACP Annual Conference. The MAS is dedicated to providing a voice for chiefs of the police agencies of the nearly 700 midsize jurisdictions and serves as a forum for these leaders to share the unique challenges and opportunities in policing that emerge in departments serving cities of this size. Midsize agencies have resources that smaller departments may lack, without the complications of larger organizations. The IACP looks to the Midsize Agencies Section for leading transferable practices in policing.
