The IBPO Is About…

COLLECTIVE BARGAINING IBPO offers direct access to professional, experienced negotiators on staff, ready to help your local negotiate the best contract possible. Our success is unmatched. We get fair contract language, raises, and unbeatable health-care provisions in every contract we negotiate. Once you and your fellow members ratify your contract, you can expect continued support from your national representative who will help you resolve job-related issues that may arise.

POLITICAL ACTION The Committee on Political Education (COPE) is a voluntary political action fund that supports IBPO’s political agenda. We finance pro-law-enforcement, pro-union candidates who support you and understand the legislation you need as a law enforcement officer.

LEGISLATIVE ADVOCACY IBPO has a powerful voice in Washington, D.C. and in State Houses across the country. Our full-time, dedicated legislative team works around the clock to safeguard and protect your jobs and your bargaining rights so that you can focus on the job of safeguarding and protecting the citizens of our cities and towns.

LEGAL EXPERTISE Unlike most unions, IBPO employs a staff of full-time labor attorneys whose only job is to work with and help our members resolve work-related issues. Our attorneys aren’t working on wills, insurance claims, and dog-bite lawsuits—they’re working in labor law to assist you. We provide legal services to our members on work-related issues, including arbitration hearings, disciplinary hearings and civil rights lawsuits.
