NAPOA President’s Message…

On behalf of the National Asian Peace Officers’ Association (NAPOA), I would like to thank all of our attendees, sponsors, and exhibitors who were able to join us in St. Paul Minnesota.  The MNAPOA did a great job of co-hosting the symposium and exposition.  I hope everyone was provided with excellent training and had a great time.  NAPOA will be holding our next Training Symposium and Exposition in San Francisco, California.  This is where it all started and we will be highlighting our founding fathers and the history of NAPOA.

We strongly encourage Chapter involvement and member participation for the success of our Association.  In 2018, we will learn about our past, live in the present, and look toward our future.  I encourage all of you to continue to be involved in your local association/organizations to make a positive impact in the communities you serve and the agency you represent.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to me, any member of our Executive board, with any questions you may have.  I look forward to seeing everyone in San Francisco for the 2018 Annual National Asian Peace Officers’ Association Training Symposium and Exposition.


Taerance Oh, President
National Asian Peace Officers’ Association
