Letter from the President

I'm humbled to serve the members of the Pasadena Police Officers Association, who put their lives on the line every day to protect the residents, businesses, and visitors of this great city.

Each and every one of Pasadena's officers reports to work with our residents' safety on their minds, and our organization is proud to represent them.

The Pasadena Police Officers Association is one of the oldest and most respected police associations in Los Angeles County. Its board of directors represents 215 police officers, corporals, and sergeants who proudly serve the Pasadena community. The PPOA supports the philosophy of the Pasadena Way and the fundamental principles of policing by reinforcing the values of respect and equality for all people.

Our Pasadena police officers contribute a significant amount of time and effort on emergency responses, criminal investigations, and neighborhood problem-solving for a safer and healthier community. The PPOA ensures all its members are treated respectfully and maintain the highest level of training, ethics, and professionalism as they work to provide excellence in public safety to those who live, work, and visit our great city. Our community benefits from the PPOA’s continuous push to promote the goals of the Pasadena Police Department and the city of Pasadena.

As president, I have appreciated the cooperative and spirited partnership with the PPOA as their dedication and willingness to collaborate has produced innovative approaches in overcoming today’s policing challenges. We're humbled by the opportunity to serve you and work with you to build a safer community together.

Thank You,
Tom Corralez
