The Portland Police Association is affiliated with the following organizations on the national and state level:


In 2016, nine Law Enforcement Associations came together with a vision and a desire to impact the national discussion on law enforcement in a dynamic way. An alliance was formalized by creating the United Coalition of Public Safety (UCOPS). UCOPS represents over 35,000 law enforcement officers and the Portland Police Association is proud to be a founding UCOPS member.

The  United Coalition of Public Safety works on behalf of law enforcement officers and the communities they serve nationwide to shape strong partnerships and break down communication barriers; building trust through active engagement, honest dialogue, education, and outreach.



The National Association of Police Organizations is a coalition of police unions and associations from across the United States and was organized for the purpose of advancing the interests of America’s law enforcement officers through legislative advocacy, political action and education.

NAPO represents more than 1,000 police units and associations, and more than 241,000 sworn law enforcement officers who share a common dedication to vigorous and effective representation on behalf of our nation’s law enforcement officers.


The Oregon Coalition of Police & Sheriffs (ORCOPS) is a non-partisan organization that advocates on behalf of police officers, deputy sheriffs, and other individuals in Oregon law enforcement agencies. ORCOPS represents over 3,800 law enforcement professionals and serves as a source of leadership within the law enforcement community and aims to build trust between law enforcement officers and the communities we serve.
