The Oregon Peace Officers Association (OPOA) was founded in 1968 to improve the professionalism of Oregon’s law enforcement community through support, communication, training, recognition, and death benefits for fallen officers. Today, it is one of Oregon’s largest law enforcement associations with nearly 1,500 federal, state and local law enforcement officers included in its membership, which is open to all law enforcement related professionals of any rank. OPOA also has several subchapters which focus on specific disciplines of law enforcement to include Oregon Association of Reserve Peace Officers, Oregon Background Investigators Association, Oregon Association of Property and Evidence Officers.
With a full training staff, OPOA provides the best training possible to law enforcement officers throughout the state of Oregon, including an annual law enforcement training conference and a full curriculum of training classes throughout the year. OPOA also offers an annual awards ceremony to specifically honor those law enforcement professionals who have gone above and beyond the call of duty, the only organization to do so for over 40 years!
For those interested in pursuing law enforcement, Oregon Peace Officers Association provides annual college scholarships. As well, OPOA provides additional death benefits to its members, supports various law enforcement related charitable activities throughout the state such as Concerns of Police Survivors (COPS), the Special Olympics Law Enforcement Torch Run, The Oregon Fallen Badge Foundation, and others.
We value our members and generous sponsors and appreciate your many years of support. We look forward to partnering with you to provide continued training that supports the services and sacrifices you make daily. Thank you!
