About the IPAFOP #323
The Irving Police Association (IPA) was formed in 1972 when a group of employees banded together to negotiate pay issues with the city and Texas Stadium. Today the IPA has grown to represent well over 400 sworn and civilian employees. The IPA continuously monitors working conditions and we take advantage of our relationship that we have developed with the Chief of Police and his staff to improve them. We have an outstanding relationship with the Mayor, City Manager and the City Council, and are in constant contact with them to improve pay and benefits.
In 2004 the IPA Benefits was born. This allowed us to be involved in local charities and host an annual golf tournament that benefits the North Texas Chapter of the Make A Wish Foundation, Irving Police Athletic League, Blue Christmas, C.O.P.S, and many others. Also an annual Hold'em tournament to assit with disabled children with Special Olympics. Most importantly, the IPA is here for our members when they are in need, not only legal, but personal needs as well.
In 2017, after a 20+ year divide, the IPA and Fraternal Order of Police (Irving Lodge 323) merged together becoming the IPAFOP Lodge 323 bringing a single voice to the Irving Police Department employees.
"To promote the professionalism of our department and to provide personal and professional support to our members"
