In Partnership With Our Community
The Milpitas Police Officers Association was established in 1966 to represent both the sworn and civilian members of the Milpitas Police Department. Milpitas has a population of approximately 70,817, which triples during the daytime because of the influx of all the hi-tech workers. The Milpitas Police Officers Association has a total of 83 dedicated sworn members, 13 dispatchers, 8 clerks and 2 interns.
The goal of the Milpitas Police Officers Association is to act as a liaison between its members and management. In addition, the Board conducts contract negotiations; schedules department functions, supports local charities and fundraisers, and works to maintain morale among its members.
The Milpitas Police Officers Association is governed by a Board of Directors consisting of a President, Vice President, Financial Officer, Secretary, and seven Board Members. The Board is elected by its members every year.
In The Department
The board members serve the association by conducting contract negotiations, scheduling of association sponsored events, maintaining and improving department morale. The board members act as liaisons between the officers and the command staff when dealing with personnel issues.
During contract negotiations, the board members complete research and present the members positions on topics such as benefits, work schedules, and salaries to the city manager.
In The Community
The Milpitas Police Officers Association is active in our community by supporting many charities and public awareness events. From donating funds to fallen officer's families to local schools and athletic organizations, the Milpitas Police Officers Association strives to assist our community.
Occasionally, the association will donate funds and services to families and victims of tragic incidents in our community. This can range from paying for dinner for an abandoned child we find on the street, to assisting a low income family with funeral expenses. Although funds are limited, we do our best at being there for people when they are dealing with a hard time in their life. We have a great working relationship with our community. By being there for them, they repay us by being there when we need them.
