The MPOA is a non-profit organization that represents 198 sworn men and women of the Modesto Police Department. We have three main functions as a Police Association.
- To protect the rights of our members and provide them with the best possible legal representation.
- To negotiate for adequate benefits and competitive wages.
- To support our community through donations to local programs and worthwhile charities.
Hi! I’m Tony Argüelles, president of the Modesto Police Officers Association. Our association represents the 198 rank and file police officers who work and live in our community. Most of our families live in Modesto or its surrounding communities and neighborhoods. We are invested in Modesto not only from an employment point of view, but because we have families, friends, colleagues and neighbors who live here.
