Jennifer Styles is a Program Manager at the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP). Jennifer has played a substantive role in shaping IACP’s community-police engagement strategy and resources. In addition, Jennifer was integral in standing up programming to support field implementation of the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing recommendations in 2015. She led the re-envisioning of these resources into a new community-police engagement hub in 2020 in the wake of civil unrest. Jennifer oversees IACP’s officer safety and wellness portfolio, including the National Consortium on Preventing Law Enforcement Suicide, Officer Safety and Wellness Symposium, Law Enforcement Resilience Training Program, and family wellness initiatives. Jennifer has a strong commitment to supporting tribal and rural communities and continues to expand IACP’s services for these often under-resourced agencies.

The International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) is the world’s largest and most influential professional association for police leaders, with more than 30,000 members. The IACP’s mission is to advance the policing profession through advocacy, research, outreach, and education to provide for safer communities. In the modern era of policing, cross-disciplinary and collaborative partnerships, evidence-based policies and practices, and meaningful community engagement are all critical to achieving this mission. The IACP has developed and launched numerous training programs, tools, and resources to help police and their multidisciplinary partners work within communities to address critical public health-related challenges such as violent crime, traffic and road safety, behavioral health and substance use disorders, gender-based violence, human trafficking, officer safety and wellness, vulnerable populations, and children exposed to violence.
