MPOA Partners with the Community
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.
We know that quality of life of all Modesto depends on a partnership between our city officials, city staff and city residents.
The MPOA is proud to be part of Modesto. We want to partner with the city and Modesto’s residents in making Modesto the best possible place to live.
People don’t always agree. And that’s ok. Most Modestans, including the MPOA, share the goal of working together to make a better city . On behalf of the men and women who patrol our streets, I want you to know we will always have public safety and Modesto’s quality of life as our utmost priority.
