Welcome to the web page for Region 19 of the IPA. The International Police Association is a worldwide fraternal police organization whose members are active and retired law enforcement personnel from around the world. The IPA exists to promote global and cultural friendship among peace officers. It is not associated with any labor organization or investigative body with law enforcement powers.

The IPA welcomes and encourages new members. Full membership is open to all law enforcement officers employed with or retired from, a government law enforcement agency. Associate membership is open to non-sworn employees and volunteers (e.g., reserve officers, chaplains, support personnel, etc.) of government law enforcement agencies with proper verification of agency affiliation and official agency identification documents. There are some limitations on the ability of associate members to participate in some activities available to full members. More details about membership requirements can be found at:
