Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association of the City of New York
http://www.nycpba.org The NYC PBA has long had an important presence in communities around the city. Through its long term support of organizations like the Police Athletic League, the NY Press Club Foundation, Community Mayor’s Association, The Marine Corps Reserve’s Toys for Tots campaign and others too numerous to mention the NYC PBA plays an important role in the community. The PBA’s presence is felt, but not necessarily seen, through its continual support for annual fund raising events like dinner dances and holiday functions particularly for the less fortunate through donations of toys, personal goods and even meals at the holidays.
Sergeant’s Benevolent Association of the City of New York
http://members.sbanyc.org/ The Sergeants Benevolent Association (SBA) is comprised of approximately 11,000 active and retired sergeants of the New York City Police Department. An independent union, it acts as the collective bargaining unit for those officers during contract negotiations with the City of New York, and manages a variety of other projects -- including health and welfare programs, political outreach efforts and community service initiatives -- for the benefit of its members and their families. The breadth of the association's activities is wide, but above all else, the SBA is an advocate for New York's police sergeants, the officers who stand at the Frontline of our nation's largest metropolitan police department.
California State Firefighters’ Association
http://www.csfa.net/ CSFA began in 1922, when a small group of firefighters met in Fresno to discuss the state of the fire service in California. After some discussion, it was decided that the very best way to serve the public and firefighters was to form an organization to work towards enacting laws to protect the public from fire and to improve working conditions for firefighters. As a result of that first conference, the California State Firefighters' Association, Inc. was born.
The National Association of Police Organizations
http://napo.org/ The National Association of Police Organizations (NAPO) is a US lobbying group representing police officers, police unions and local police officer associations. It was founded in 1978. NAPO represents more than 2,000 police units and associations, 241,000 officers, 11,000 retired officers and more than 100,000 others not directly associated with the police. NAPO sponsors the Top Cops award for outstanding achievements by individual police officers.
The Detectives Endowment Association, Police Department, City of New York
http://www.nycdetectives.org/ The DEA maintains a not-for-profit charitable Fund to help support the families of those who die in the line of duty: The DEA Widows’ and Children’s Fund. The concept of this Fund dates back to the founding of the union in 1917, at a time when the widows and children of slain police officers received very little assistance, and it was up to the officer’s colleagues to look after the welfare of the families of their fallen brothers. That protective spirit, bond, fraternity, and brotherhood still exists today amongst the members of New York’s Finest.
New York State Troopers PBA
www.nystpba.org Since the beginning of the New York State Police in 1917, the duties of New York State Troopers have changed with the times. Horses have been replaced with patrol vehicles, aircraft and boats. Uniforms and equipment have been updated. While these and many other aspects of the job of a New York State Trooper have changed, our members' professionalism and dedication to serving and protecting the public has only strengthened with each passing year.
