The mission of NAPOA is to promote diversity within the law enforcement community and open doors for advancement through leadership training, education and mentorship.
NAPOA President’s Message…
I would like to thank all of our attendees, sponsors, and exhibitors who were able to join us in New York in 2016. I hope everyone had a great time but most of all, was provided with excellent training. The National Asian Peace Officers’ Association (NAPOA) will be holding our next Annual NAPOA Training Symposium and Exposition in Saint Paul, MN. This year’s theme “STRENGTHEN POLICE – COMMUNITY RELATIONS” will focus on strengthening our partnerships with others as well as the communities we serve. NAPOA strives to build trusting and respectful relationships between Asian/Pacific Islander communities and law enforcement. As President, I hope to continue the tradition of excellence exemplified by my predecessors and the Board of Directors, without whom the many accomplishments of the Association would simply not be possible. In 2017, we will progress forward with new traditions and the boundaries of such activities are only limited by the imagination and energy of our members.
Chapter involvement, membership participation, and the generous support from sponsors have attributed to the overall success of the National Asian Peace Officers’ Association. So I urge you to continue to participate in the annual training symposium, encourage other friends and associations to get involved with NAPOA and make a positive difference. Also, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me, any member of our Executive Board, with thoughts, suggestions, or concerns. I look forward to seeing everyone at Minnesota for the 2017 Annual National Asian Peace Officers’ Association Training Symposium and Exposition.
I am honored to serve as the President of NAPOA and I thank you in advance for your commitment and dedication to the members of the National Asian Peace Officers’ Association.
