Message from the President:
Bangladeshi American Police Association (BAPA) was formed in January of 2015 with hands full of NYPD members. BAPA never looked back since it’s inception. Members of the BAPA consists of New York City Police Department (NYPD) both uniform & civilians, NYS and NYC Correction Department, City University of New York (CUNY) Public Safety Officers, Nassau County Police Department (NCPD), Port Authority Police Department (PAPD), Atlantic City PD and various other Law Enforcement agencies within the United States.
Today, we have more than a thousand member, recognized by NYPD and camaraderie among our members is stronger than ever. It’s really amazing and fascinating how our members come together and extend helping hands for each other at the time of need. That’s why, I’m honored to be part of this organization not only as President, but also as a member. BAPA is unique and inimitable because there are no ranks among its members. We are BAPA, we are one family.
BAPA is making noticeable progress by closing the gap between Bangladeshi community and law enforcement agencies. Most importantly, BAPA has been doing remarkable job reaching out to our youths and recruiting more Bangladeshi women into law enforcement fields. We are twitting affordable housing informations, job openings, public safety tips, domestic violence awareness via social media.
