Welcome to I.U.P.A.

The International Union of Police Associations is the only union chartered exclusively for law enforcement and law enforcement support personnel. While I.U.P.A.’s officers, active and retired law enforcement officers, fight to improve the lives of their brothers and sisters in law enforcement, I.U.P.A. works to improve legislation that protects and affects public safety officers, as well as representing the needs of law enforcement officers and support personnel, whether that be for better equipment, more staff or a fair wage.
