The National Latino Peace Officers Association was founded in the early 1970's by John Parraz, Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department, and Vicente Calderon, California Highway Patrol, San Jose Office. Since then the organization has become one of the largest Latino Officer Association in America, with NLPOA Chapters across the Nation.
The goal of the National Latino Peace Officers Association is to promote equality and professionalism in law enforcement. The objectives of the organization are to create a fraternal/professional Association that provides its members and members of the community with career training; conferences and workshops to promote education and career advancement; mentoring; and a strong commitment to community service
Citizenship programs, mentor programs, reading programs in our elementary schools, training programs for individuals looking for a career in law enforcement and promotional workshops for our police and sheriff's departments are just a few of the contributions from our association.
