Please consider joining the Yolo County Retired Peace Officers Association (YCRPOA), which was formed in 2002 by Lee Refsland, Bob Jones and Doug Bera, and was officially incorporated as a non-profit organization in 2008, for the purpose of collecting funds to construct and maintain a permanent monument to honor Yolo County law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty.  After years of fundraising, the YCRPOA achieved its goal, and on May 11, 2013, the Yolo County Peace Officers Memorial monument was unveiled in front of the former Yolo County courthouse in Woodland. Each year in May, during National Police Week, the YCRPOA hosts a ceremony honoring Yolo County law enforcement officers, who have made the ultimate sacrifice, and whose names are memorialized on the monument.

The YCRPOA also helps in other ways:

By assisting association members and their families in the time of need and distress.

By providing support and assistance to others in the Yolo County law enforcement community in the time of need and distress.

By providing scholarships and financial assistance, as well as, guidance and mentoring to students planning to pursue a career in law enforcement or public service.

By promoting and perpetuating relations among its members and workers in law enforcement, whether retired or still actively serving.

By providing a forum, or social setting, in which members and non-members, may renew acquaintances, make new friends, discuss topics of mutual concern/interest; thereby, promoting camaraderie and social growth.A

You are invited to attend the next monthly meeting of the Yolo County Retired Peace Officers Association (YCRPOA) scheduled for 0900 hours on TBD*, 2020.  The meeting will be held at the Woodland Elks Lodge, 500 Bush Street, Woodland, CA
