Message From The President

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to welcome you and thank you for your interest in the Community Policing Association of Oregon.

The Community Policing Association recently rebranded from Crime Prevention to Communtiy Polcing to make it more encompassing statewide. 

The Community Polcing  Association of Oregon (CPAO) is a statewide, non-profit organization of citizens, law enforcement officers and crime prevention professionals working together to develop, promote and advance crime prevention programs and education in Oregon. CPAO and its members accomplish this with exchange of information and community involvement.

CPAO was founded in 1974 and is guided by a volunteer Board of Directors. CPAO is always looking for active board members, please feel free to contact any current board member if you are interested in joining our current board.

CPAO is a great organization and we look forward to a positive productive year.

Respectfully Submitted

Scott Bressler
