Join the IPA!

Why become a member?

Friendship, travel, events, sports competitions, seminars and scholarships, collectors’ meetings, professional exchanges, meeting colleagues from around the world, the opportunity to become a member of the largest police association in the world ... the list is endless!

Membership is managed by our National Sections. To become a member, please visit the National Sections page. If your country is listed, you can contact them directly to request further information about joining us or enrol online.

If your country is not listed, this means there is no IPA section there presently; however, you may still be eligible to join as a Foreign Associate Member of an existing section. In this case, please contact the International Administration Centre at or fill in the general enquiry form on the contact us page for further guidance.

We look forward to hearing from you!
