ABOUT THE OPOA
The Oceanside Police Officers' Association’s goal is to professionally represent the Police Officers that comprise the majority of the Oceanside Police Department.
In order to achieve this goal, the OPOA strives to promote a high level of commitment to public safety and professionalism within the ranks of the Oceanside Police Department via an emphasis on education, legal support, community outreach and trust building.
So that the citizens of Oceanside may enjoy an exceptional level of law enforcement protection by attracting and retaining the best and brightest Police Officers', balanced with a focus on the responsible use of tax dollars, the OPOA strives to ensure that the wages of Police Officers are competitive to those being paid to Police Officers in similar cities facing similar crime and danger.
The City of Oceanside faces many challenges. With city crime and the challenges of dangerous gang activity and violence, comes the need to maintain a highly professional Police Department. The Oceanside Police Officers' Association is committed to partnering with our community and city leaders to make Oceanside a safer place and maintain it as a great city to live, work and raise a family.
