President's Message

Welcome to the Santa Ana Police Officers Association website and social media platform.  Please take the time to learn about the association and then follow us as we interact with the beautiful and diverse community that is Santa Ana.

The first thing we want you to know is that we love the City of Santa Ana.  Many of our officers were born and raised within 10 miles of City Hall.  We pride ourselves on making outreach to the city, one of the association’s priorities every day.  While the Santa Ana Police Department has implemented programs such as Community Oriented Policing and Problem Solving, it is our members who embrace this approach in their daily activities with our residents and make this effective.

The next thing is our Santa Ana Police Officers Association has been actively involved in the community for decades, we’re fast approaching our 75th anniversary as an organization.  Not only do we sponsor youth teams and groups, but our association members serve as mentors, coaches, and teachers on their own time.  Every fall season, kids in our city schools get clothes, shoes and school supplies as a result of our partnerships with schools, businesses and civic groups.  At Christmas, we use that same shared interest in the betterment of our city to gather up those partners who help us make the holiday brighter for those in the community who are in need.  We also have a more formal scholarship program.  We regularly work with the Santa Ana Unified School District to award cash grants to local high school students to allow them to continue their higher educational goals.

Finally, it is our intention to continue to be an active part of the Santa Ana community.  We look forward to maintaining our relationships with neighborhood associations, business groups, the schools, and all civic organizations that understand the need for that level of public safety that allows a city to thrive.  We have appreciated their continued support as we constantly seek ways to provide better and more helpful policing service.  Along with our many partners in the city, together we will work toward keeping Santa Ana safe and vibrant.

Follow us, stay informed and visit our site often.  We want you to get involved with the Santa Ana Police Officers Association.
