About NAPO

image description


The National Association of Police Organizations (NAPO) is a coalition of police unions and associations from across the United States and was organized for the purpose of advancing the interests of America’s law enforcement officers through legislative advocacy, political action and education.

Founded in 1978, NAPO is the strongest unified voice supporting law enforcement officers in the United States. NAPO represents more than 1,000 police units and associations, and more than 241,000 sworn law enforcement officers who share a common dedication to vigorous and effective representation on behalf of our nation’s law enforcement officers.


This is in response to the statements made a few years ago by the person who is now the Deputy Spokesperson for the U.S. State Department. It is gravely concerning that a high-ranking official at the State Department views American police officers as a greater threat than ISIS.

NAPO was a part of securing the Presidential pardon for Prince George’s County, Maryland Police Officer Stephanie Mohr




Please see the below a letter from from NAPO to Dr. Cheryl Champ from the Pelham Union Free School District. The grandchildren and other supporters of a slain NYC Transit Detective, George Caccavale, have been banned from wearing a sweatshirt honoring the memory of their grandfather to school because the chairperson of the school district found it “threatening. The sweatshirts have a “thin blue line” police flag on them.
