Associate Members shall have all benefits of membership except the right to hold office or vote.
  • Agency Memberships.  On April 11, 2011, the Board unanimously voted to authorize group memberships for law enforcement agencies.  Agency memberships are ideal for departments who pay for their officer’s membership dues.  This membership allows the agency to receive one invoice for all officers.  Additionally, agencies will receive a discount on dues through this membership.   To accomodate transfers, retirements, etc., agencies are permitted to change the names of the officers that are members at any time. The categories for agency memberships are:

*1-5 Officers: Dues – $200 first year/$100 any additional year(s)

*6-10 Officers: Dues – $425 first year/$200 any additional year(s)
