The PICP brings together Pacific Police Chiefs to exchange information, share learnings, and form regional agreements.

The Pacific Islands Chiefs of Police (PICP) was founded in 1970 in Suva, Fiji and is one of the oldest regional bodies in the Pacific. Over the past 50 years, the PICP has worked continuously to build safer and more secure communities by improving policing.

There are 21 members in the PICP, with the Commissioner, Chief or Director of Police of each national police service representing the member state.
