“I believe the membership fee will be offset the first time you use the service. I am not aware of any department that would have local access to the accumulated knowledge of the members. The years of real life experience that you can access to help develop policy, procedure, seek information on trends, is very impressive.
At times departments will only look within for answers and suggestions to issues, use IACP Net as one of the sources to get a larger view of the issues and how others that have gone through the same type of situation and resolved it.
We have all heard it before “do not reinvent the wheel”, take advantage of those endless miles traveled by others.”
