Why Affiliate With I.U.P.A.?
YOU ARE THE LEADERSHIP: The Executive Board and Executive Committee are elected by the membership every four years. The Executive Board is made up of 14 Regional Vice Presidents who are active duty law enforcement personnel located throughout the country. The Executive Committee consists of the International President & International Secretary-Treasurer, both retired, career law enforcement personnel.
YOU ARE THE POLITICAL POWER: The I.U.P.A. has become the most politically influential voice on law enforcement issues on the federal, state, and local levels for issues that affect you and your community. Lobbying federal officials and representatives on behalf of locals, we also meet regularly with Members of Congress and make endorsements based on your recommendations. We count on you to advise us on issues relevant to you and your members.
YOU ARE PROTECTED: The General Counsel’s Office, headed by a national expert on law enforcement, FLSA, and Constitutional issues, advises full-service attorneys and locals on issues that are important to law enforcement.
YOU HAVE STRENGTH: The Organizing Department provides expertise and logistical support for event organization, strategy, and execution of efforts to strengthen your local from the very beginning.
YOU HAVE CONTROL & SUPPORT: We conduct training for local Secretary-Treasurers and provide guidance to locals on the best way to handle their own budget and financial issues. We also provide training for local members in Stewardship and Managing a Union.
YOU ARE INFORMED: The Research Department of the I.U.P.A. is designed to provide locals with information and data to assist them in protecting the rights of their members through in-depth wage and benefit studies, contract language comparisons, and other methods. The Research Department also regularly receives requests about topics which concern the Law Enforcement Community.
YOU ARE HEARD: The Public Information Department works with local, national, and international media to educate the public on what YOU do day-to-day. We assist locals in working with the media to ensure your story gets told, even when you are not permitted to speak.
