History of the
Peace Officers Association
The Northern California Peace Officers Association (NCPOA) was founded in 1934 by leaders of the law-enforcement community throughout the Sacramento area.
It was formally organized in 1952 with the election of Sacramento Chief of Police Jim Hicks as the first NCPOA President.
In 1978 The NCPOA was incorporated as a tax-exempt non-profit association.
In 2011 the NCPOA Scholarship Fund was recognized by the IRS as a tax-exempt public charity.
Since its original inception, the NCPOA has grown to over 400 members representing both active and retired public safety personnel from federal, state, county, and local public safety agencies.
The primary mission of the NCPOA is to provide scholarships to juniors and seniors enrolled in the Criminal Justice program at California State University Sacramento.
The NCPOA has awarded well over $250,000.00 in scholarships to over 200 deserving students. Many of these recipients have gone on to have distinguished careers in public safety, parole, probation and corrections.
The NCPOA is also dedicated to improving communications within the criminal justice system and enhance recruitment of well qualified candidates into the law enforcement profession. As well as the advancement of the art and science of police administration, to secure cooperation and coordination of all law enforcement matters, and to achieve the adherence of all peace officers to the highest professional standards of conduct.

Because of government-mandated COVID related restrictions, NCPOA was unable to hold the election of new officers until now. However, members of the 2019-2020 Board of Directors have continued working on your behalf throughout this entire quarantine period. The long-delayed election will be held at the September meeting.
We had a great turnout for the meeting in Grass Valley. It was good to see many of our friends. Our Host Nevada County Sheriff Shannon Moon and some of her staff cooked up their traditional BBQ Tri-tip and served a delicious meal to our attendees.
