The Directors meet twice a year to discuss the programs, benefits and future direction of RPOAC. They receive reports on the status of our association including current benefit offerings, website and newsletter information, as well as a financial report from our Treasurer.

President Bernards appointments of Danny McGlothlin as our Vice President, Harry Hunold as Director of the Orange Chapter and Roger Mathias as Director of the San Diego/Imperial Chapter were all approved by a vote of the Board. Welcome aboard! (officially)

Director Blayney gives a Newsletter/Website report. Board members review reports and other documents.

At this years meeting we were pleased to have as our guest Mr. Ron Dreher, the Government Affairs Director of the Peace Officers Research Association of Nevada (PORAN). Mr. Dreher spoke to the Board about his organization and how RPOAC and PORAN might provide beneficial support to each other. Another guest that joined the Board for dinner was Mr. Aitor Barruetabena, a retired bomb technician from the Basque Country in Spain. He has been travelling around the U.S. visiting friends and wanted to meet members from American law enforcement.

These meetings are a great opportunities for RPOAC members to meet other members and come together to support one another. Please start planning now to attend the 2018 General Membership meeting.

CCW Coverage Offered Through RPOAC

As retired peace officers many of us are authorized to carry a concealed weapon. But, have you given any thought to what your liabilities could be if you were to have to use that weapon in a self-defense incident? The legal costs alone could devastate your retirement nest egg not to mention the physical and emotional stress it would inflect on you and your family.

RPOAC is excited to announce a new benefit being offered to our members: CCW Safe

CCW Safe was founded by former police officers and attorneys who have all worked on local, and federal levels of law enforcement. CCW Safe is a legal service membership plan that was designed for CCW permit/license holders and retired law enforcement officers. CCW Safe was founded to offer similar coverages to what we received while serving our communities as active police officers.

Learn more about Carrying a Concealed Weapon coverage benefits.



F.O.P. (The Fraternal Order of Police) is the world's largest organization of sworn law enforcement officers, with more than 330,000 members in more than 2,100 lodges. They are the voice of those who dedicate their lives to protecting and serving our communities. They are committed to improving the working conditions of law enforcement officers and the safety of those they serve through education, legislation, information, community involvement, and employee representation. No one knows the dangers and the difficulties faced by today's police officers better than another officer, and no one knows police officers better than the FOP.

RPOAC members must be members of FOP to be eligible for the benefits offered. Membership in FOP can be obtained through our online dues payment page by clicking on the "FOP Dues" button or by contacting our Executive Director, Dennis Wright at (800) 743-7622.
