LAW ENFORCEMENT MAGAZINE
The Missouri Peace Officers Association is more than 60 years old and has a membership of over 1,000 peace officers in the state of Missouri. Membership in the MPOA comprises all branches and ranks of law enforcement; chiefs and officer; sheriffs and deputies; prosecuting attorneys; coroners; FBI, Secret Service, DEA, ASIS, and ATF agents; railroad police; U.S. Marshals: private security; Missouri Water patrol; state highway patrol and postal inspectors.
Each MPOA member receives a Law Enforcement, a professionally edited magazine and newsletter which circulates quarterly. The magazine and newsletter provides a means of communication for the membership. The advertising revenue from the magazine helps fund the Association's many programs and community activities throughout the state. These activities have included financial support of Missouri Special Olympiccs, Ronald Mcdonald Houses, Missouri Chapter concerns of Police Survivors, MPOA college scholarships, Missouri Law Enforcement Memorial foundation, National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, D.C., and state training programs. MPOA also sponsors an annual essay contest for Missouri's eighth-grade students that focuses on the problems of violence in our schools. Each year they honor an "Officer of the Year" award and also a "Citizen of the Year" award. In addition, the MPOA provides a death benefit to the family of any law enforcement officer killed in the line of duty in the state of Missouri.
