Our Mission


The International Union of Police Associations is the only AFL-CIO union
chartered exclusively for law enforcement and law enforcement support personnel.
The AFL-CIO affiliation places I.U.P.A. in a position of strength within the
labor movement. 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.

“Speaking with one voice, Moving with one Purpose”

I.U.P.A. supports law enforcement and corrections officers in addition to support personnel.
