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).

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.
