Representing the Men and Women Who Walk the Toughest Beat in the State.

About Us

Who We Are & What We Do

The mission of CCPOA is to fight on behalf of our members for the enhancement of wages and benefits, as well as the provision of a positive work environment. While there are many challenges for corrections in California, including the possibility of private prisons, the continued overcrowding of our existing prisons, the increasing number of violent inmates - particularly in the youth facilities - and the need to enhance the profession through training and education, we face them head on for our membership.

Every single member of our leadership team is a correctional officer and is elected by the membership. As a result, CCPOA's leaders have a personal understanding of the issues faced by correctional officers and a strong commitment to the profession that can only come from "walking the line" behind California's prison walls. This collective knowledge and experience is a big part of what makes CCPOA one of the state's most effective employee organizations.

In the years since our first contract was signed in 1982, CCPOA has been able to make great strides and do a remarkable job for our membership. We are always expanding our knowledge, training, and experience to provide our members with the absolute best representation. We will continue fighting the critical issues that currently face the corrections industry, and we are prepared to meet whatever challenges may come in the future.
