The Oregon Peace Officers Association currently has general law enforcement membership as well as four subchapters, also known as special chapters. These subchapters represent particular segments of the law enforcement community and serve the criminal justice field in general. Each subchapter is guided by a constitution or set of bylaws consistent with the OPOA Constitution. Annual meetings are held for all members, as well as specialized training for their segment.
The Oregon Peace Officers Association currently has nearly 1,400 members from all areas of the law enforcement community. OPOA members include both sworn and non-sworn criminal justice professionals throughout the State of Oregon, in addition to four subchapters representing special segments within law enforcement.
