The Carlsbad Police Officers Association’s goal is to professionally represent the Police Officers, Communications Personnel and Community Service Officers that serve in the Carlsbad Police Department.
In order to achieve this goal, the CPOA strives to promote a high level of commitment to public safety and professionalism within the ranks of the Carlsbad Police Department via an emphasis on education, legal support, community outreach and trust building.
It is our firm belief that the members of the CPOA provide the highest level of service, integrity and professionalism to the citizens of our fair city. To that end, the CPOA partners with our administration and elected officials to attract and retain the best and brightest employees, balanced with a focus on the responsible use of tax dollars. The CPOA strives to ensure that the wages and benefits of our members are competitive to those being paid to Police Officers in similar cities facing similar crime and danger.
The City of Carlsbad faces many challenges. With the many facets of our unique profession, the expectations placed upon our employees are extremely high. Our officers proactively address criminal behavior, partner with community groups, work with local schools, provide threat assessments, enforce municipal codes and perform countless other duties that contribute significantly to the quality of life in the beautiful City of Carlsbad. The Carlsbad Police Officers Association is committed to partnering with our community and city leaders to make Carlsbad a safer place and maintain it as a great city to live, work and raise a family.
"Our members provide highly personal, dedicated, and professional services to the residents and to those who travel through Carlsbad, California."
