REPRESENTING THOSE WHO SERVE
The MPA was established in the 20th century with a simple mission in mind: represent law enforcement officers who serve the people of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Since our founding, we have inducted thousands of police officers and their supporters into our ranks, and successfully achieved our goals to create an entity that police can always turn to when they are in need.
Legislation from lawmakers can have a profound impact on the police forces in Massachusetts. The MPA keeps cops informed on the happenings on the Hill to ensure they can safeguard and exercise their rights to keep themselves, and their communities, safe.
The criminal justice system in this country is sacred to police. However, in these changing times, its decisions are not always easy to interpret, understand, or, at times, accept. That is why the MPA offers expert legal resources and assistance to all police officers in need.
About the MPA
The MPA has a storied history of supporting police in Massachusetts. Through our efforts, citizens of the Commonwealth, and the officers who protect them, can stay informed, participate in strengthening law enforcement, and honor the memory of the men and women who have sacrificed so much.
The MPA doesn’t stop at simple information. We provide helpful services to police officers, their families, and the communities they serve. Legal defense, legislative information, scholarships, award ceremonies, charity events – the MPA has always been there to lend a helping hand and organized assistance where and when we can.
