President's Message

First and foremost, I would like to say that I absolutely love being a Glendale Police Officer. On behalf of the Glendale Police Officers’ Association (GPOA) I would like to welcome you to our website. The website will hopefully give you a deeper look at the GPOA, including its history and our objectives. We represent approximately 230 GPD police officers and sergeants on issues ranging from labor-personnel matters to contract negotiations. 

The GPOA actively works with numerous charitable organizations and we are especially proud of our involvement with Cops For Kids. Throughout the year, Cops for Kids raises money through various events for youth and needy families in Glendale.

The GPOA also contributes to an extensive list of worthy causes in the City of Glendale. We are proud to say that through the GPOA, every officer at the Glendale Police Department has given back to the community they serve, above and beyond their daily duties. We take pride in partnering with the Glendale community to make this City a better place to live and work.

The men and women of the GPOA are dedicated to representing and protecting your interests and fostering community support.

Please enjoy our revamped website and feel free to contact us should you have any questions or concerns.
