About the PPA
Maintaining the Vigil since 1942
The Portland Police Association is an independent labor organization representing the Police Officers, Sergeants, Detectives, and Criminalists who work for the Portland Police Bureau and the 911 Dispatchers who work for the Bureau of Emergency Communication. We are the oldest continuous police union in the United States. Our primary mission is to advocate for our members in collective bargaining and be a voice in our community, connecting our members to the communities they serve.
