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 two years.
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 member's positions on topics such as benefits, work schedules, and salaries to the city manager.
