Chief Robert J. Rosch

Welcome to the Wisconsin Chiefs of Police Association (WCPA) website and our association.

“The achievements of an organization are the results of the combined effort of each individual”

-Vince Lombardi

This is a classic message and speaks to the heart of this association. Since 1907, the Wisconsin Chiefs of Police Association has been providing quality training and assistance to Chiefs of Police, associate members of their command staff, other law enforcement officers, and advisors. Our membership includes law enforcement professionals from many ranks within municipal police agencies, but is also strengthened by our partnerships with many county, state, and federal partners.

As an example, through its partner organization, the Wisconsin Police Leadership Foundation, the Wisconsin Chiefs of Police Association provides two training conferences annually in both the winter and summer months.

The Wisconsin Chiefs of Police Association also has numerous committees to support the association membership and these are listed on this website. I would encourage all of you to step up and be engaged. You will find it very rewarding in your career and the networking is just tremendous. Feel free to contact me at any time and I will try to help you out in whatever way I can. Remember what Coach Lombardi said, we have to have a combined effort of everyone to succeed.

There is no greater gift in your profession than to be respected by your peers and to represent them in a leadership position. Thank you for supporting me as I start this journey as the President of the Wisconsin Chiefs of Police Association and I hope to see you at our conferences.

On Wisconsin and God Bless America!
