The Memorial Festival is a benefit event to raise money for the families of officers killed in the line of duty. The purpose of the Memorial Festival is to create a fun-filled day for the children, families and friends of fallen officers to share with the community. It is an opportunity for the community and friends of SAPD survivor families to show them that they are not forgotten.

Executive Board

Message from the President

For more than 10 years, I have been proud to serve you and work with our Executive Board to protect and promote a brotherhood among our members. To me, SAPOA is more than just a professional association, it’s a family, and like family, we all look out for each other. That’s why I’ve been so proud of everything we’ve been able to accomplish in the last few years. From negotiating a favorable contract with the city that protects officer’s rights and benefits, to working with our state legislature to ensure that they enact strong public safety laws, to supporting Blue Cares, SAPOA’s community outreach arm that helps children all across San Antonio, this has been a busy and productive year.
