Our Mission

The Asian Peace Officers Association was created in 1991 as a Valley Chapter of the Northern California Peace Officers Association. In 1993, the Valley Chapter created this independent entity as a non-profit IRS § 501 (c) 3 charitable organization.

The “Mission” of the Sacramento Asian Peace Officers Association: The purpose of APOA is to train, mentor and support law enforcement officers; recruit for a diverse workforce into law enforcement; provide community outreach with focus in the Asian-Pacific Islander community; and represent law enforcement in a positive manner in the community.

The Sacramento Asian Peace Officer Association is committed to supporting and assisting many community-based programs. It is our belief that positive interactions with our diverse community is fundamental to the law enforcement and association’s mission.

We host an annual banquet to fund training, community events, networking opportunities, and scholarships for youth.
