The Muscatine Police Officers Association is a fraternal organization within the Muscatine Police Department that is made up of active and retired members of the department, from the Chief of Police down to the newest officer. Though the MPOA is not officially part of the Muscatine Police Department, it does pride itself on working to help advance the departments mission of serving the community where ever possible.
Formed in 1934 as a local affiliate of the Iowa State Police Association, the MPOA was only the 6th such group in Iowa to join the new state association. In the years since then the ISPA has grown to become the largest association of law enforcement professionals in Iowa and the MPOA has grown with it.
