Updated Message from NAPOA President Siamone Bangphraxay: (6/18/2020)
|To my NAPOA Brothers and Sisters,|
I can’t stress enough the importance of your health and safety during this trying time. The executive board and I know how much each and everyone of you have been through these past several months because we all have been through it together during this difficult time.
I can’t say enough, how proud I am of you as you stand and hold the line, all the while being antagonized and attacked for the uniform and the badge you wear. Yet you continue to maintain your inner strength and professionalism to protect your community and the rights of the peaceful protestors. Your strength, courage and commitment are stronger than ever but your heart and compassion is even more tremendous which coincide with NAPOA’s values.
As you know, the executive board and I have been working hard with the Red Rock Resort and Spa in regards to this year’s NAPOA Conference since the breakout of the pandemic.
After multiple long discussions and meetings, we decided to postpone this year’s NAPOA Conference and move it to next year, same place, time and date. For those members who have made reservation for hotel rooms and paid registration conference fees, you will be getting a refund. Please contact the hotel directly for your room cancellation and refund. I will have our registration chair, contact all those who paid conference registration fees and issue a refund.
I hope to see everyone next year at the conference. Again, please do not hesitate to contact myself or the executive board for any further questions or concerns.
Continue to stay safe and healthy! Take care of yourself, your family and each other.
Siamone Bangphraxay, President

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.
