Arizona National Latino Peace Officers
Today, the National Latino Peace Officers Association is the largest Latino Law Enforcement Organization in the United States, with over 80 local chapters in many cities throughout the country.
The association is a non-profit 503(c) (3) Public Benefit Association and is not organized for the private gain of any individual. The association will not discriminate against any individual because of race, color or religion or tolerate any form of sexual harassment.
In 1990, the Maricopa County Chapter of the NLPOA was created. Prior to that it was known as the Brotherhood of Mexican-American Police Officers (BMAPO). BMAPO was a Hispanic based non-profit police association created in 1978 by Hispanic Officers of the Phoenix Police Department.
