Back to Blog


International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) covered the most pressing law enforcement topics with renowned keynote speakers, forums and technical workshops with a large exhibit of products and services covering more than 700 exhibitors, interactive zone, and education.

The conference followed a Global Perspective theme, including: Use of Force Revisited: Approaches from Around the Globe, The Unexpected Challenge: Law Enforcement and Mental Health, and A Shared Plague: The Impact of Narcotics Around the World.

ACS showcased their DrugWipe – a screening tool used globally by traffic police, customs officials, drug squads and DREs (Drug Recognition Experts). Developed by Securetec AG, and exclusively distributed in North America by ACS, the Drugwipe detects several common drugs within 3-8 minutes. This non-invasive drug screener provides preliminary results for cannabis, opiates, cocaine, amphetamines/methamphetamines/ecstasy, methadone, ketamine and benzodiazepines.

The event also allowed police executives to discuss lessons learned and the impact made by critical incidents ranging from targeted violence, mass casualty and attacks targeting police.
