2021 CACP Mid-Year Conference Has Gone Virtual and Registration is Open

Due to the current rise in COVID-19 cases in Colorado and increased restrictions being placed across the state, we have decided to move to a virtual platform for this year’s Mid-Year conference. That being said, we are still hosting in conjunction with the County Sheriffs of Colorado (CSOC). Please be assured that the level of training and opportunities for time with vendors may look different, but will remain valuable, productive experiences!

Dates: Monday, January 4th - January 6th, 2021

Location: Online - more information regarding the platform and log in information will be shared closer to the conference.

Registration is open now!

Register by December 16th to receive your attendee’s materials box in advance of the conference! It will contain a gift from CSOC/CACP, conference coin, information from vendors, snacks, and more! Registrations received after December 16th may not receive their conference box on-time. 

Registration is $125 for members and non-members, or $75 for first time CACP Member attendees.
