About Us

Our Story

“Our family supporting yours…”

Previously known as the Patrol Protective Association, or “PPA”, the Association has served its members since 1936, by providing benefits and protective features that cannot be supplied by the Colorado State Patrol. The Association is a 501 (c) 5 non-profit public service organization that focuses on providing its members with an improved quality of life. Member benefits include a life insurance policy, a legal defense plan, supplemental insurance plans, access to scholarship and teen driving programs, access to Colorado State Patrol merchandise, a subscription to The Colorado State Patrol Magazine, and many other benefits.

The mission of the Colorado State Patrol Association is:

“To represent the collective interests of patrol personnel in matters involving compensation, benefits, and the retirement security they have earned

To offer members access to legal counsel during critical incident(s), administrative, disciplinary, criminal, civil, and traffic matters that occur in the line of duty

To promote a positive image of the Colorado State Patrol and support its members and their families.”

“In the United States, state police power comes from the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution, which gives states the rights and powers “not delegated to the United States.” States are thus granted the power to establish and enforce laws protecting the welfare, safety, and health of the public.

 

With this power comes intense scrutiny from the public and elected officials. This is why the Association makes sure the voice of its members is heard, not just through our lobbyist or a department spokesperson, but through our member driven Association. The role of the Association President is here to be that voice, to stand tall, and to make sure our perspective and view is carried forward for serious consideration.

 

 

Having spent two plus decades in service to the State of Colorado, balancing time between rural, metro, specialty, and field positions, it is my stated goal to best represent our collective interests as President of the Association.”
