Letter From The President
Dear Burbank Community Member:
As President of the Burbank Police Officers’ Association (BPOA), and on behalf of our entire membership, I would like to thank you for your ongoing support. The mission of the BPOA is to protect and serve the men and women who serve as guardians for the Community of Burbank.
The BPOA seeks and supports positive interaction with the Community. The development of this website is just one example of our efforts. Through community engagement and collaboration with those who support our mission, we hope to positively impact the residents, businesses, and visitors to Burbank.
The sworn officers who make up the BPOA have taken an oath to maintain law and order for our citizens. They are among the finest representatives of our community. In line with the Law Enforcement Code of Ethics, it is our passion to serve our community; to safeguard lives and property; to protect the innocent against deception, the weak against oppression or intimidation, and the peaceful against violence or disorder; and to respect the Constitutional rights of all to liberty, equality, and justice. We proudly support local, regional, state, and national charities both monetarily and through volunteer participation.
In a time where there is much misinformation and politicizing about the law enforcement profession, I would encourage you to engage our officers in an effort to educate yourself about our duties and our challenges. The Burbank Police Department offers some great programs such as the Citizens’ Academy and the Youth Academy that provide excellent avenues through which we can interact with our community; however, I support an open dialogue through daily interactions with the officers you encounter in the field. These conversations will serve to build and strengthen a mutual understanding and trust that will fortify the integrity of our Burbank Community.
Please take the time to review this site, and make any comments, which you feel may help to improve its content. I am humbled to serve as president of the BPOA and grateful for the opportunity to serve the Community of Burbank. May you and your family forever enjoy safety within our community.
Burbank Police Officers' Association
