I would like to thank the AAPOL members for the support and dedication to the organization. The February General Meeting was successful with attendance and participation of all events. I’m requesting that we as an organization continue to reach out to others in getting more officers to become members.
In the near future, the AAPOL Board will discuss relocating our headquarters back to Griggs Rd. with the intent to make it more convenient for members to attend meetings and be more present in the community.
Again, I would like to thank the members for the support, Chief Acevedo for backing AAPOL’s initiatives and Executive Chief Finner for his guidance. Let’s continue to make the African American Police Officers’ League great!
