May this Christmas end the present year on a cheerful note and make way for a fresh and bright new year. Becoming the new Chapter President for "Sacramento NLPOA" will be a challenge I'm looking forward to, working with my brothers and sisters across the nation to make our country a better place to live,
"Si Se Puede".
Here's wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
Miguel Arias , Sacramento NLPOA President.
Greetings to all.
On this beautiful Christmas
I would like to take the opportunity to thank
you for your commitment to serve. Only our families and our brothers and
sisters in uniform know how much dedication and commitment it takes to serve
our communities. Some of us joke that we do it for ‘the good pay and retirement',
but let's keep it real.
There is no
municipality that can pay a Peace Officer for all the human tragedy that an
Officer witnesses during ones career.
truly takes a resilient, courageous, and loving person to serve. And for that I
In addition to individual acts, there are great
organizations that have been formed by these same men and women for the purpose
of creating a new future. We are all fortunate to be part of one of them- The
National Latino Peace Officer Association. There is no better time like the
present to acknowledge this. You are all part of this great Association that
has contributed so much to both peace officers and communities. For that, thank
you. Thank you for being a leader in your respective organization by being a
member of this association.
So in the Spirit of Christmas, my heartfelt thoughts of
happiness, health, and peace are wished upon you and your loved ones.
I end with a Challenge. I challenge all of NLPOA's members
and officers to step-up in your respective positions this coming year. We need
each other now more than we ever have. I believe that it is no longer a
struggle against inequalities but a struggle against ourselves and the image
that we are building. I challenge you to step out of your comfort zones and
take some initiative to do what is right, to complete what has been left
unfinished, and most importantly to fulfill our promises and oath of our office.
I for one except this challenge and hope to be held accountable. We are all
great people and can accomplish much when we work together. Let's make 2014
Que tengan una Feliz Navidad y un prospero

Greeting from the
State of Texas
Happy Holidays everyone! I pray this message finds each of
you safe and in good health.
I hope you
were able to spend time with Family and Friends.
It gives me great pride and joy seeing our members coming
together to assist members in need and working in their Communities especially
during the Holidays. This kind of kindness and dedication is what makes me
proud to be a part of this association. As we enter into a new year, I ask each
of you to continue the good work and become involved so your voice can be
heard. Unified and working together is the only way to make this association
one of the best.
I ask that we take a moment to remember our fellow officers
in blue who have fallen in the line of duty and their families.
And let's not forget all the first responders
and our Military men and women throughout the world who are keeping us safe.
On behalf of the State of Texas, we salute and thank you
each of you for your commitment to serve and for doing your part in making our
communities a safer place to live.
May 2014 bring each
of you happiness and good health.
With the year rapidly coming to an end, I would like to
take this time to thank the NLPOA-Los Angeles Chapter Board, members, their
families and community for all their support over the last year. We have had
our share of ups and down over the last year as a chapter and organization as a
whole but we all maintained a positive can do attitude which enabled us to
accomplish so much. As you all know we have put together an exciting schedule
for 2014 and I look forward to working with you hand in hand to make this an
excellent year for the NLPOA-LA!
family and I would also like to wish you all a safe and blessed new year.
