About the Montana Police Protective Association
The Montana Police Protective Association established in 1930, and incorporated in 1955 continues today to be the foremost police organization in the state of Montana.
Police officers from around the state organized the MPPA to make the profession of policing better for every police officer. The courageous officers back in 1930 began a movement to make things better through legislative measures and through collective bargaining. Life in policing was extremely difficult in 1930, but the members of the MPPA continually worked hard to set a firm foundation for the rest of us to build on.
From 1930 to the present, the members of the MPPA continue to build an organization that fights for the rights of police officers. The members of the MPPA have built one of the strongest police associations in the northwest. Through the diligent efforts of many, the members of the MPPA and their families enjoy numerous benefits.
