About

The Peace Officers Research Association of California (PORAC) was incorporated in 1953 as a professional federation of local, state and federal law enforcement agencies. PORAC represents nearly 70,000 public safety members and over 920 associations, making it the largest law enforcement organization in California and the largest statewide association in the nation.

Our duty is to provide Californians with the safety and security they need to feel protected in their homes and on our streets. It is PORAC’s mission to identify the public safety needs in our communities and provide programs to adequately meet those changing needs. Because, if our families aren’t safe, nothing else matters.
