LPOA-Sacramento County Chapter, since the early 1970's, has sponsored numerous community programs to make Sacramento a better place to live. Citizenship programs, mentor programs, reading programs in our elementary schools, training programs for individuals looking for a career in law enforcement and promotional workshops for our police and sheriff's departments. LPOA-Sacramento County Chapter has sponsored numerous fundraising events and provided thousands of dollars in scholarships to deserving students in the Sacramento area.

On February 27th, 2010, The Honorable Gilbert Cedillo, 22nd Senatorial district, presented a resolution/commendation to acknowledge the invaluable contributions that our chapter has made to the local area. On August 11th, 2017, our chapter was once again honored to receive a resolution/commendation from Assembly Member Jim Cooper. The contributions the LPOA-Sacramento County Chapter has made to the local area are invaluable, and reflect an organization devoted to the highest ideals of community service. 

The LPOA-Sacramento County Chapter works with donors like you, law enforcement agencies and community partners to provide scholarships to college-bound students. We mentor Sacramento and surrounding area students by providing community-based activities and supporting after-school programs. We are also involved in aiding the community through our participation in holiday giving programs. LPOA-Sacramento County Chapter's primary focus is the youth in our communities and keeping their dream alive. All of this would not be possible without your assistance. The LPOA-Sacramento County Chapter relies on the generosity of our community partners to ensure the continued success of our organization. 


Honoring family, education, community service, and mentorship.

The mission of the National Latino Peace Officers Association is to eliminate prejudice and discrimination in the Criminal Justice System (particularly in law enforcement). To create a fraternal/professional association that provides support, advocacy, personal and professional development to its members. To prevent and reduce juvenile delinquency; and lessen neighborhood tension in the Latino communities, through awareness and role modeling, provide bi-lingual assistance to the public, and bridge the gap between the Latino community and the law enforcement.


The LPOA-Sacramento County Chapter is seeking community members who would like to be active members of our organization to provide mentorship and help with our fundraising efforts so we can strengthen our community support through our scholarships and various other community programs.
