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 San Francisco, California.  The Northern California Asian Peace Officers Association (NCAPOA) did an amazing job of co-hosting the conference.  The NCAPOA board and its volunteers worked tirelessly to make sure everyone that attended had a great experience.  I would like to commend San Francisco Asian Peace Officers Association (SFPOA), Oakland Asian Police Officers Association (OAPOA) and the Filipino American Law Enforcement Officers (FALEO San Francisco) for their assistance and commitment to the conference.

NAPOA will be holding our next Training Symposium and Exposition in historic Boston, Massachusetts.  We will be highlighting diversity and the importance of working with the community. We 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 Boston for the 2019 Annual National Asian Peace Officers’ Association Training Symposium and Exposition.

Taerance Oh, President
National Asian Peace Officers’ Association (NAPOA)
