Updated Message from NAPOA President Siamone Bangphraxay: (4/7/2020)

To my fellow NAPOA brothers and sisters,

As we face this challenging and unprecedented time of this pandemic, I want to assure you that NAPOA has never been stronger than ever.  The executive board and myself have been monitoring the pandemic, as I am sure you are too.  The effect has tested our family, community and profession to its core.

I know that many of you have a lot on your plate right now and have been wondering about the status of our 2020 NAPOA Conference in Las Vegas. We have been in contact with the hotel, Red Rock Casino Resort and Spa, as we monitor this pandemic and where it’s heading.

The conference has not been cancelled, however given the fluid situation of this pandemic, there may be a possibility of postponement. The executive board and I will continue to monitor the situation and will continue to give you any updates in regards to our 2020 conference.

NAPOA has been through many trials and tribulations these past 40 years, and together we will continue to be resilient and stand strong. I have no doubt that we will get through this together as a family!

Please do not hesitate to reach out to myself or any of the executive board members for any questions or concerns.

Remember to love and help one another, continue to stay safe, strong and healthy!

I will see you all soon.

NAPOA President’s Message…

On behalf of the National Asian Peace Officers’ Association (NAPOA), I would like to thank all of our attendees, sponsors, and exhibitors who were able to join us in Boston, Massachusetts.  The Benevolent Asian Jade Society of New England (BAJSNE) did a great job of co-hosting the conference.  The collective efforts of BAJSNE and the surrounding agencies resulted in attendees having a great experience.  I would like to commend all those involved and behind the scenes for their assistance and commitment to the conference.

NAPOA will be holding our next Training Symposium and Exposition in vibrant Las Vegas, Nevada.  This will mark our 40th Anniversary! We will be highlighting diversity, unity and the importance of continuous work with the community. We continue to strongly encourage Chapter involvement and member participation for the success of our Association.  I encourage all of you to continue to be involved in your local association/organizations to make a positive impact in the communities you serve and the agencies you represent.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to me, any member of our Executive board, with any questions you may have.  I look forward to seeing everyone in Las Vegas for the 2020 Annual National Asian Peace Officers’ Association Training Symposium and Exposition.
