THE ITALIAN AMERICAN POLICE ASSOCIATION OF ILLINOIS



Please join us at our next meeting on Tuesday, November 11, 2014 at 7:00 PM.   Please see our 'News' section for more information.

  OUR HISTORY

The Italian American Police Association began in 1963, when a group of 12 police officers saw a need for a fraternal organization, which embraced all law enforcement officers of Italian heritage in the State of Illinois. With this as its purpose, a charter was secured, by-laws adopted and today an association of over 500 members, who are employed as law enforcement officers. All are of Italian origin and have dedicated themselves to fulfilling the mission statement.
