The International Association of Recognized Police Officers (IARPO) is the international regrouping of all Recognised Police Officers. It is a non-governmental, non-profit, non-discriminatory organization constituted through and recognized by the Swiss Government. As an international organization on a global scale we are here to provide professional development, mentoring, training, networking and recognition for professional law enforcement officers and civilian support staff.

We are supporting development and improvement of security and safety associations and companies worldwide.


Recognized professional police officers may be accredited by us if they meet certain requirements in the Statutes.
