Mission

Our mission is to promote Bulgarian honor, bravery, integrity, culture and spirit. To strengthen the friendship and cooperation between its members and the public. To publicize law enforcement in a positive way and to oppose discrimination and prejudice against all people. B.A.P.A. is an organization that seeks to enhance the quality of life for both Bulgarian-American law enforcement officers and for the communities we serve.

Members

Since the Bulgarian American Police Association was formed, it has rapidly grown and now has members from across the country working in Local, State, County and Federal Law Enforcement agencies.

Community

  As you already know, all of us are full-time police officers, sheriffs, state troopers and federal officers/agents. Many times, our line of duty requires us to serve midnight shifts and sometimes double shifts in emergency situations.

   In addition, some of us still serve in the military, as reservists.

However, we find the time and use our money to volunteer and help within the Bulgarian community. We visit Bulgarian schools and help Bulgarians living in the U.S. on many different levels.
