What is the MPA?

Who We Are

The Milwaukee Police Association is the force… behind the force; forever endeavoring to care for the professional Police Officers, Forensic Investigators, and Detectives of the City of Milwaukee. It is our mission to ensure our membership is best positioned so as they may provide the highest degree of uninterrupted public safety service to the community.

The Milwaukee Police Association (MPA) was founded in 1909 as The Police Officer’s Protective Association of the City of Milwaukee and later became known as the Milwaukee Professional Policemen’s Protective Association. The MPA has continued the mission of our founders: to protect and advocate for the over 1,500 members of the Association. We provide representation during disciplinary investigations and critical incidents. We are the exclusive bargaining agent for sworn non-supervisory employees of the Milwaukee Police Department.
