Hello, and thank you for supporting the Stanislaus County Peace Officers’ Association (SCPOA). As a past Board member and President Elect, I am honored to now serve as your current SCPOA President for 2018.
SCPOA is an organization that supports Stanislaus County law enforcement officers and their families. It is comprised of active and retired members from varied Stanislaus County law enforcement agencies. Our primary goal is to provide financial, planning, and emotional support to widows, widowers, and eligible dependents of law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty. The association prides itself on its ability to help and assist surviving family members in any way.
As part of our support, SCPOA created a permanent memorial at Lakewood Cemetery in Hughson, California. The memorial stands as a tribute to our fallen officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice while serving the citizens of Stanislaus County. The Association maintains the care and preservation of the memorial and hosts an annual Peace Officer Memorial Day ceremony to pay our respect.
Additionally, SCPOA provides monthly social networking events for current and retired law enforcement officers. This is a time for us to gather and enjoy each other’s company. Each social includes a training components related toward current trends in our area. The SCPOA also assists with a variety of countywide events and supports our youth by providing an annual scholarship fund for high school students interested in pursuing a career in law enforcement.
The professional and competent Board members of the SCPOA are always ready to step in when called upon. It is my privilege to serve as President of the Stanislaus County Peace Officers’ Association for the 2018 term.
Please feel free to contact me or any member of the Board with questions regarding SCPOA and thank you for your support.
SCPOA President, Ceres Police Lieutenant
