Officer at Idaho Peace Officers Memorial

Our organization consists of a membership which includes Sheriffs, Deputy Sheriffs, Chiefs of Police, City Officers, Marshals, State Law Enforcement Officers, Prosecuting Attorneys, Deputy Prosecutors, Judges, Special Railway Agents, and Federal Officers whose duties in whole or in part consist of Law Enforcement in the State of Idaho.

Established in 1935, chartered by the state in 1957, the IPOA has been Idaho’s premier peace officers association. Each of our over 625 active and retired members are dedicated to improving law enforcement and the communities which they serve. In order to continue our work, we rely on your generous support.

Throughout the year, the IPOA identifies and supports local, state, and federal legislative action to enhance and support the criminal justice community.  We support programs to support officers killed or injured in the line of duty as well as community support of youth and senior assistance programs.

Mission Statement

The purpose of this organization is to associate together persons engaged in the enforcement of criminal laws within the State of Idaho. To encourage cooperation between the various law enforcement agencies within the state. To promote professionalism of members within the criminal justice system by inspiring a just pride in their work, by promoting and sponsoring adequate educational programs beneficial to the Association membership and citizens of the State of Idaho, to provide individual benefits for the members, to support legislative and retirement matters that enhance the criminal justice system and membership.

Contributions to Other Programs

IPOA has contributed to Idaho Youth Ranch, SAFE KIDS, MADD, Make A Wish, Idaho Humanitarian Bowl, and has provided funds for the Peace Officers Memorial, C.O.P.S., and has assisted with survivor funding for slain officers and injured officers.

We provided funding for a full time Lobbyist to assist with legislative matters, most specifically the recent retirement enhancement benefits and the change in disability retirement. Our legislative committee worked with the lobbyist and PERC and was able to bring about these benefit improvements, which required considerable effort over a long period of time. Congratulations to the team that worked so hard to get these improved benefits for all law enforcement officers in the State.
