President's Message

Dear Resident, Business and Community Member,

As President of the Carmel-by-the-Sea Police Officers' Association (CPOA) and on behalf of our entire membership, I would like to thank you for your ongoing patronage of our Association and the causes we support. Our goal is to professionally represent the rank and file, men and women, of the Carmel-by-the-Sea Police Department, who proudly protect and serve the community of Carmel-by-the-Sea.

In this fast-paced, ever evolving, technologically advanced age, we are striving to create an atmosphere of transparency and two-way communication, which will help solidify a robust relationship between our Association and the entire community we serve. One way we feel helps us reach this goal, is by creating this new, interactive website. This interactive website provides an avenue for supporters to engage in community programs and support other causes with similar philosophies. We feel that together, we can make positive influences on the lives of those people who need it most. In the coming months, we will continue to grow and expand to achieve this goal.

The CPOA consists of 19 officers whom have taken an oath to maintain law and order for all people, and represent the finest element of our community. You can be assured that each and every day, we are working diligently to build a safe and prosperous environment for everyone to enjoy.

We are proud of the various community, regional, state and national charities who benefit from our support and involvement. In addition to our main mission, we support many organizations who align with our vision of a better community. We proudly support: The Salvation Army, Alliance on Aging , Monterey Food Bank, Carmel Youth Center, Seniors Helping Seniors, Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), California Police Officers Association, Law Enforcement Memorial and Carmel Youth Athletics. If you are interested in making a donation to our Association to show your support, click here.

Please take the time to review this site and make any comments, which you feel may help to improve its content. If you have a charitable organization that you feel contributes to the Carmel Community, please feel free to share that information with us. We are always looking to support organizations that improve the quality of life for our community members.

Again, we thank you for your interest and support of the CPOA, we wish you and your family many enjoyable prosperous years in the Carmel Community.
