About Us

The mission of the Peace Officers Association of Los Angeles County is to lead, train, facilitate, inspire and advocate on behalf of federal, state, county and local law enforcement agencies and private sector security professionals to maximize the safety of those who depend upon us.

The Peace Officers Association of Los Angeles County (POALAC) is a 501(c)6, trade organization, composed primarily of law enforcement officers at the local, county, state, and federal levels, working cooperatively with each other, the private sector, and other government agencies to advance the interests of public safety and professional law enforcement in Los Angeles County. POALAC is managed by an Executive Board, and the general POALAC membership is composed of dues-paying members. Non-law enforcement persons are also permitted to join as members of POALAC.

POALAC’s committees are composed exclusively of members who commit to volunteer their expertise and efforts to promulgate the POALAC mission.

In addition to establishing powerful networking linkages among its members and the community, POALAC presents professional POST-approved seminars by renowned experts in their fields, has monthly theme-driven general membership meetings, publishes a magazine, hosts this Internet website (updated every 48 hours), and conducts many other regular and as-needed activities to advance its mission.
