Press release for immediate distribution

The Northern California Peace Officers Association (NCPOA) is proud to announce the 2017/2018 recipients of the NCPOA Scholarships. These scholarships, in the amount of $1,750 dollars each, are awarded to members of the junior or senior class enrolled in the Criminal Justice Degree Program at California State University, Sacramento. Each recipient also receives the Sergeant Kelley Allen - Shrine Peace Officers Scholarship Award, an additional $200 each from the Sacramento Shrine Law Enforcement Unit. These recipients were selected from qualified applicants and attended an interview panel to determine their eligibility. This year the panel selected seven applicants for scholarships. The NCPOA will award a total of $13,650 in scholarships at this luncheon. The seven recipients will receive their scholarships at the March 15th, 2018 NCPOA Luncheon at the Jose Rizal Center, 7320 Florin Mall Drive, Sacramento. 

The March 15th lunch will begin at 1130 hours and conclude by 1400 hours. This luncheon is hosted by Sacramento Sheriff Scott Jones. 

The 2017/2018 NCPOA Scholarships will be awarded to:

Jonathan Aguilar-Apolinar: Will receive the CSUS Criminal Justice Alumni Scholarship provided by the Criminal Justice Alumni Chapter Board. 

Alfonso Alejo: Will receive the Michael Greene Scholarship in honor of our late recording secretary and past President Michael Greene, supervising Deputy Coroner (ret).  

Austin Harris: Will receive the James Cameron Scholarship in honor of the late Sheriff of Yolo County and a founding member of the NCPOA.

Miguel Cordero: Will receive the Cal Florence Scholarship in honor of our past Executive Director.

Daniel Bartlett: Will receive the Val Kobza Scholarship in honor of our Executive Director.

Devon Sobotka: Will receive the Larry Stamm Scholarship in honor of the former Undersheriff of Sacramento County and a past President of the NCPOA.


NCPOA Scholarships two students applied for the scholarships and twelve were invited to the interview process. From that group seven were selected by the committee to receive the scholarships for this year.  

The NCPOA dates back to the 1930's and was formally organized in 1952 with the election of Sacramento Chief of Police Jim Hicks as the first President. The NCPOA was incorporated in 1978 as a tax exempt non-profit association. In 2011 the NCPOA Scholarship Fund was recognized by the IRS as a tax exempt public charity. The association is comprised of active and retired members of public safety departments at the local, state and federal level, Probation Departments, California Department of Corrections and other law enforcement personnel and associate members.  

Social luncheons are held ten times a year in Sacramento and the contiguous counties. These luncheons are hosted by local agencies and give the members and guests the opportunity make new friends, renew old associates and foster communications among the membership. The principle philanthropic goal of the NCPOA is to provide scholarships to juniors and seniors enrolled in the Criminal Justice Degree Program at CSUS. The NCPOA takes applications for the scholarships in the fall and will award between four and eight scholarships each year.  

Since 1984, the NCPOA has awarded over $220,000.00 in scholarships to over 200 deserving CSUS Criminal Justice students. Many of these recipients have gone on to have distinguished careers in public safety, parole, probation and corrections.

NEWS BRIEFS: Had a very good meeting in Woodland at the beautiful Senior Center. Our host Luis Soler, CoP Woodland went against the trend and came from Texas to California. Very nice to hear from him and the events in Woodland, but he really wants to know why we have a state income tax! Sheriff Prieto was not able to make the meeting, but with good reason, he took his bride to Italy for their wedding anniversary. The board had granted Sheriff Prieto an honorary Life Membership, so we will see that he gets it soon. Our other host, Captain Chuck King, CHP will be leaving the Woodland Office to a promotion and assignment to CHP Headquarters, we will miss him as a co-host, but he has stated that he will attend future events. Congratulations, Chuck. We again used the door prize basket arrangement and it seems to be very successful, attendees got to chose which items they wanted. One lady is wrapped up in spring cleaning, and was happy to get the micro mop, dust cloths and Pledge!! Your treasurer got a life fitness watch and a bottle of wine and can use both!

Our final meeting of the season before the summer break will again be held in Lincoln at McBean park. With the election of new officers and the board for the coming year, this is the official meeting of the NCPOA as required by our by laws and we would like to see as many members as possible in attendance. Your vote and participation is vital to the continued health and success of YOUR association. Dave and Jean Reume, from Cow Camp BBQ will be out of the state during June and will not be able to cater the luncheon, but we have located Beau Ingram of IngramEatz who will cater the event and promises an outstanding meal.  

We will have a supply of the newly minted NCPOA Challenge Coins at the luncheon. Sales at Woodland were brisk and we are very pleased with the product. Remember, if you are challenged by another member to show your coin and you do not have it to produce, the first round of drinks is on you!

New members and paying your dues on time are what keeps the NCPOA a vibrant and functioning organization. We need members to step forward to become involved in the continued functioning of the NCPOA. If your dues are due in June, you should receive an addressed envelope with this month’s newsletter. Your membership date is shown on the label, if it is before 6/2018, you missed a payment, otherwise dues are $25 per year and just put your check in the envelope, stamp it and send it in. Thank you, from your Treasurer.

This month will be the tenth of the luncheons for the year and we are looking forward to the lunch in Lincoln on June 21st, when we will elect the new board and officers for your association. We need members to step forward to serve as board members for the coming year. Not a great deal of time and effort, but a good way to support the NCPOA and its activities. If you have suggestions or questions about the requirements you may ask any of the board members or our Executive Director.  

Some of you may not know, but the NCPOA web site, www.ncpoa,net has been joined by a Facebook page, check it out and give us a thumbs up “LIKE.” If you don’t know what that means, you are probably not on Facebook.

NEW MEMBERS: Welcome to Jan Arbuckle, SSD (ret) and Mayor of Grass Valley. Also, three new Life Members, Rod Ciganovich, ABC (ret); Wayne Ikeuchi, Captain SSD (ret) and Joe Williams, CoP Folsom (ret). Thank you all for your support.

SCHOLARSHIP DONATIONS: A very good month, the auction of Woodland PD host challenge coins netted $85 for the Scholarship Fund.  

TREASURERS REPORT: The Red Book of luncheon receipts and checkbook expenditures are available at the Treasurer's desk at every meeting. Membership renewals are going great for this year.
