I’ve been a member of the Oxnard Police Department for 19 years and have served the organization in many capacities. I’m proud to now serve as the Oxnard Peace Officers’ Association president.
Our membership faces many challenges today. As we evolve, we will continue to pursue fair wages and benefits for our membership and protect the rights of those who have sworn an oath to protect and serve our community.
I was born in this wonderful city and have spent the majority of my life here. I feel strongly that every member of the OPOA is a part of this community as well. Being a part of the community is a staple of all law enforcement and has been since its birth. As Sir Robert Peel said, “The Police are the Public, and the Public are the Police.” With this belief, the OPOA will continue to invest in our community through donations, volunteering, and building partnerships with charitable organizations throughout Oxnard and Ventura County.
As you visit our website, we welcome any comments or questions you may have, and if you wish to partner with us in any endeavor to better our great city, please reach out to us.
Thank you for your support!
Rick Marquez Jr., President
