Oxnard POA logo


The Oxnard Peace Officers Association (OPOA) was founded in 1976 to protect and enhance the rights and benefits of its members. Today the OPOA represents more than 250 police officers, public safety dispatchers and public safety officers from the rank of police officer to sergeant.

While the OPOA continues to ensure its members’ interests are represented, our commitment to community engagement and philanthropy is just as important.

The OPOA serves as a bridge between its members and the citizens of Oxnard. Through our participation in community programs and events, along with charitable contributions, we strive to continuously strengthen our relationship with the community.

Every year the OPOA and its members serve the needs of the Oxnard community by donating more than $50,000 to community groups, an overwhelming majority for youth groups.

In addition to our commitment to Oxnard area youth groups, the OPOA offers a yearly scholarship to each Oxnard area high schools (Channel Islands High School, Hueneme High School, Pacifica High School, Oxnard High School, Rio Mesa High School and Santa Clara High School) for students pursuing their secondary education. Each recipient receives $1,000 towards tuition, books and supplies.
