Letter From The President

Dear Resident, Business and Community Member,

As president of the Palo Alto POA, and on behalf of our entire membership, we would like to thank you for your ongoing support of our cause. Our mission is to protect and serve the community of Palo Alto and also promote an individual member commitment to the Palo Alto community that we serve and reside in. You will find Association members active throughout local community civic, fraternal, and sporting organizations.

In this fast-paced, technologically advanced age, we are striving to create an atmosphere of transparency and communication, which will help to render a more robust relationship by and between our entire communities.  One way we feel helps us to reach this goal, is by creating this new, interactive website.  In the coming months, we will be adding other advancements to achieve this goal.  By engaging in community outreach programs, and supporting all those who align with our philosophies, we feel we can make a positive difference in the lives of people who need this most.

The Palo Alto POA consists of 76 sworn officers, whom have taken an oath to maintain law and order for our citizens, and represent the finest element of our community.  You can be assured that each and every day, we are working diligently to build a safe and prosperous environment for everyone; especially our children.  We are proud of the various communities, regional, state and national charities who benefit from our support and involvement. The Special Olympics Torch Run, Tip a Cop, Polar Bear Plunge, Babe Ruth Soccer Team and other charitable organizations to name just a few all fall within our vision of a better world with which to live.  Feel free to click here to help us support our benevolent mission, and align yourself with us in this charitable effort.

Best Regards,
