Welcome to the Indiana Chapter of APCO. The Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials - APCO International - is the world's oldest and largest not-for-profit professional organization dedicated to the enhancement of public safety communications. With more than 15,000 members around the world, APCO International exists to serve the people who manage, operate, maintain, and supply the communications systems used to safeguard the lives and property of citizens everywhere.

The Indiana Chapter of APCO was founded more than 65 years ago, and since then we've been joining public safety professionals together throughout the state. By hosting statewide quarterly meetings, regional conferences and the 1935 and 2003 national conferences, we've been bringing new information, ideas and training to those individuals. We have provided this web site as a quick reference to activities and contacts in our chapter. The purpose of this website is to serve our members and those interested in joining APCO.

The Silent Key Scholarship program was initiated as a means of remembering and honoring individuals who have participated in APCD, contributed to APCD, and meant a great deal to APCD members. By remembering these individuals who mean so much to us, they continue to contribute to our organization even beyond the years we were privileged to have them in our midst. The scholarships afford these individuals an eternal means of helping to develop those who wlll follow in their footsteps as leaders, mentors, and public safety communications professionals.

The Commercial Advisory Council (CAC) Scholarship Program Fund was initiated by the Commercial/ Corporate Advisory Council as a means for its commercial members to give back to the public safety community.  Scholarship funds are received through the CAC and administered by APCD Institute.  Fund donations are accepted throughout the year and disbursed for public safety job-related training.
