2020 UCOPA Annual Conference


Utah Chiefs of Police Association 2020 Annual Conference

Due to circumstances beyond our control, the 2020 Utah Chiefs of Police Association conference has been cancelled for this year and the Utah Chiefs Association will resume our conferences beginning in March of 2021. We apologize for the conflict of on and off again, but times and dates just do not work out and the date we had set in September conflicted with the Sheriff’s conference. Also, costs were a consideration due to possible cancellations of chiefs and exhibitors.  We explored the possibility of joining with the Sheriffs Association in September, but due to all the logistics that also was not an option. The Association will be scheduling a mid-winter conference, place and times to be announced.

Chiefs wishing to utilize their conference fees for next year’s conference will not need to contact us. Next year we will set up a system for you to simply notify the association of your intent to attend. If you paid by card or check and wish to receive a refund for the cancelled March dates, please contact Chief Brian Gwilliam at the email address [email protected]  Please be patient as it will take time to process reimbursements.  

We will be having our elections for new officers via email.  Also, the Executive Board will make award presentations to those selected at their respective Council meetings.

We apologize for the inconvenience and will make every effort to keep you informed and updated on information regarding next year’s annual conference and the upcoming mid-winter conference.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
