Membership Chair

My name is Brandon Love and I have had the esteemed pleasure to serve the City of Houston as a Houston Police Officer for the past 7 years. I currently hold the position as memebership chair with AAPOL.
Throughout my tenure as membership chair, one of my main objectives is to bridge the gap between AAPOL and its colleagues. I am excited to garner new innovative ideas that will help increase membership so all members are aware of the resources provided to them if needed.

Iron sharpens iron and I believe AAPOL is ready once again to make sure the organization and its members are in pristine shape to do so.

Please give me a ring for further inquires.

Until then,
