Links to the International Police Association worldwide.
The International Police Association is one of the most unique and interesting social organizations in the world. This fraternal organization is dedicated to “unite in service and friendship all active and retired members of the law enforcement service throughout the world". The IPA strives to enhance the image of the Police in its member countries and to facilitate international cooperation through friendly contacts between police officers of all continents.
Membership exceeds 320,000 members in 59 countries and is steadily rising. Membership is open to any serving or retired law enforcement officer meeting the requirements of Australian Constitution. Membership is offered regardless of rank, race, sex, colour religion or creed.
The IPA was formed by Sgt Arthur Troop in England in 1950. This began with the dream of one man to have police officers band together through friendship. This is known in the Association’s Motto “Servo per Amikeco”, which in Esperanto means “Service through Friendship”.
The IPA creates an opportunity for cultural exchange and contacts on a local, national and international level. The IPA is a tremendous organization for members and their families who wish to travel anywhere in the world.
Members are often extended courtesies, offered assistance and given tours that would not normally be available to the general public. If you are a traveller seeking fun, excitement and new friends in far away places, you will be pleased to know there will be a friendly face there to meet you
The IPA offers something a travel agency cannot - nobody knows the city or town like the police officer who leaves and works there. Check out accomodation in Australia ...
Membership in the association is granted after an application has been prepared and submitted. Enrollment and first year of dues are $50.00. Thereafter the annual membership fee is $20.00.
Every hobbyist will find a corresponding member throughout the world ready to exchange information for collectables. Some of these hobbies are patch and insignia trading, ham radio, uniforms, stamps, Internet communication or just pen pals.
