The International Police Association’s
South African Section
A Non-Profit and Non-Governmental body made up of serving and retired officers from different police services worldwide.
Welcome to the South African Section of the International Police Association or better known as IPA.
Our motto, “Servo per Amikeco” translates to “Service Through Friendship”.
Service because without commitment, there is no friendship and without friendship, there would be no IPA.
Oldest & Largest
For more than 60 years, the IPA has welcomed more than 420,000 members from over 100 countries, that is why the IPA is now known as the oldest and largest police association in the world.
Whether it be social, cultural or professional, our gatherings are like discoveries that give sense to our values and our ideals of friendship, tolerance, and peace.
By joining the IPA you will not only enjoy great benefits but you will also support our endeavours towards creating universal friendship through respect for human rights.
The IPA is yours to discover, develop and of course, to enjoy.
