President's Message


Welcome to the Vallejo Police Officers’ Association (VPOA) website.  We hope that you find our website useful and informative.  The members of the VPOA are proud to serve the citizens of Vallejo. We strive to “serve and protect” to the best of our ability.

Policing in the Bay Area is tough job.  The members of the VPOA work long hours (often not by choice) and under stressful conditions.  They are often away from their families on holidays, birthdays and soccer games.  We are reminded of the dangers of being a cop everyday.  Stickers on our police cars remind us of Officers Thacker, Easson, Azuar and Capoot who were killed in the line of duty - killed while serving and protecting the citizens of Vallejo.

You will see that the members of the Vallejo Police Officers’ Association do much more than work for the Vallejo Police Department.  They are committed to the City of Vallejo and its citizens.  The VPOA is an active supporter and sponsor of various community programs.  The VPOA also participates in the Police Activities League, various Little Leagues and other community events.  In addition, we are active members in the Vallejo Chamber of Commerce and the Vallejo Visitor’s and Convention Bureau.  On our website,  you will find useful articles and information on current events, safety tips and  other items of interest within our community and across the Nation.

Lastly, drop us a line if you ever have an idea, comment or suggestion - we would love to hear from you. Stay alert, stay safe, get involved and help make the City of Vallejo a great place to live, work and play.
