About us

NATIONAL BLACK POLICE ASSOCIATION

The NATIONAL BLACK POLICE ASSOCIATION is a nationwide organization of African American Police Associations dedicated to the promotion of justice, fairness, and effectiveness in law enforcement. The NBPA has several chartered organizations throughout the United States, and associate members in Canada, Bermuda, and the United Kingdom. The principal concerns of the NBPA center upon law enforcement issues and the effect of those issues upon the total community.
