Public Safety Americas

New in 2023! This Section is intended for public safety professionals located throughout the Americas. Everyone, however, is welcome to join.

We recognize the need to provide international networking opportunities to our members, and one of the ways we are addressing this need in 2023 is through the development of new Sections based on different global regions.

Public Safety Europe

New in 2023! This Section is for public safety professionals throughout Europe. Everyone, however, is welcome to join.

We know there is a need to provide additional networking between the public safety disciplines globally and there are unique issues impacting providers across different regions. Join this Section if you are interested in learning from your European peers.

Mental Health

“Don’t let your struggle become your identity.” – Unknown

This Section is for everyone whether you're looking to find new coping strategies for stressed days or if you're a part of a peer support team in your department. Members of this Section will be able to contribute to the development of articles, webinars and publications for the global public safety community. We recommend everyone interested in self-improvement to join. 


John F. Kennedy once said, "Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other." This Section is for current and aspiring leaders. Everyone in a leadership position knows that complacency isn't an option, course correction is common and to be successful you have to have an open mind about change. What worked in the past may not be relevant in the present or future. We recommend that everyone who is interested in leadership to join. 

Integrated Response

If you are interested in networking with public safety officials in law enforcement, fire, EMS, 911 and allied emergency responders then we highly recommend joining this new Section.

We envision Section Members discussing active shooter incidents, mass casualty incidents, terrorism, civil unrest and other man-made and natural disasters that bring the public safety community together.

Terrorism & Counterterrorism 

Foreign Terrorist Organizations are identified by the U.S. State Department on a continual basis. We often don't hear about them in main stream media. 

This Section will focus global and domestic terrorism, counterterrorism and extremism. We recommend that everyone who is interested in learning more about these issues to join.


It is common knowledge that fitness, nutrition and wellness are critical components to first responders’ health. Given this, the IPSA has developed a new Fitness Section to help all our members stay fit-for-duty, whether you're working in the field or behind a desk...


From cybersecurity and UAS to smart phones and broadband, technology plays a role in every day public safety operations.

This Section will focus on all things technology. We recommend that everyone who is interested in learning more about existing and emerging technologies, their applications, known and evolving threats and how to maximize their utility to join this section.
