Our Story

“Serving DPS and Arizona for over 60 years…”

AZTroopers membership is made up of entirely of DPS employees and retirees, sworn and civilian, and is the only organization that represents only DPS employees. AZTroopers Board is composed of sworn, civilian, and retiree leaders working together for the benefit of all DPS employees, its retirees, the DPS and the State of Arizona. AZTroopers is a labor organization which continues to assist members with benefits such as life and cancer insurance, legal services, and financial planning. Another one of the association’s main functions is to provide financial assistance to families of officers killed in the line of duty. AZTroopers also offers scholarships to members and their dependents to Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University, and the University of Arizona.

In addition, AZTroopers has grown to be a powerful lobbying organization in the state legislature. AZTroopers is constantly reviewing and testifying on behalf of law enforcement related issues at each legislative session. Several years ago, AZTroopers became a PAC (Political Action Committee), offering support to those candidates who support and further the interests of the association and the Department of Public Safety (DPS). The association has been extremely instrumental in obtaining new legislation to benefit DPS employees as well as Arizona’s residents.

The association provides support for the DPS Explorer Program, Special Olympics, the Uniformed Safety Educational Officer’s Workshop, the Make–A-Wish Foundation, and educational programs for children such as “Bumper” The Talking Patrol Car and DARE. The association also sponsors a yearly program known as the Christmas Patrol Bear Program, where DPS officers statewide converge at their local hospitals to spend time with ill and injured children in the hospital at Christmas time.

“I am excited to have the opportunity to serve the membership in this capacity. As we move forward, we will continue to strive to offer the membership quality representation and services.

 

I commit my energy and talents to this great organization and look forward to the challenge. I am eager to hear from the membership what ways to best serve you and your familes.
