Additionally, Phil Pulaski maintained membership in law enforcement organizations such as the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP).

The world’s largest association of police leaders, the IACP strives to enhance police leadership and improve community safety. Among the IACP’s programs is an Alzheimer’s initiative that helps law-enforcement officials more effectively protect and serve individuals living with the condition. An interactive map provides state-specific information about systems that notify the public of missing persons with dementia or Alzheimer’s, as well as links to specific programs and resources available in each state.
By 2050, a projected 20 million Americans will be living with Alzheimer’s. The IACP Alzheimer’s Initiative also teaches first responders targeted skills to help them better protect this vulnerable population.
