The Redding Peace Officers Association is dedicated to professionalism, service, and camaraderie. Our members provide highly personal, dedicated, and professional services to the residents of our community.
The Redding Peace Officers Association is a non-profit organization that represents the sworn men and women of the Redding Police Department. We Protect the men and women who protect the City of Redding by protecting the rights of our members and provide them with the best possible legal representation, to negotiate for adequate benefits and competitive wages, and to support our community through donations to local programs and worthwhile charities.
The Redding Peace Officers Association represents both the sworn and civilian members of the Redding Police Department. Redding has a population of approximately 90,119, which doubles during the daytime due to Redding being the County seat of Shasta County. The Redding Peace Officers Association has a total of about 88 dedicated sworn members, about 12 Community Service Officers.
The Redding Peace Officers Association is governed by a Board of Directors consisting of a President, Vice President, 1st Vice President, Financial Officer, Secretary, Member at Large, and Political Action Officer. Depending on the position, The Board is elected by its members either annually or bi-annually.
The board members serve the association by conducting contract negotiations, scheduling of association-sponsored events, maintaining and improving department morale. The board members act as liaisons between the officers and the command staff when dealing with personnel issues. During contract negotiations, the board members complete research and present the member's positions on topics such as benefits, work schedules, and salaries to the city manager.
