The IPA at 70 - IBZ Gimborn

09 Jul 2021

A remarkable milestone – the IPA turns 70!

On behalf of IBZ Castle Gimborn, we are delighted to extend our warmest wishes and congratulations to the International Police Association on its 70th Anniversary. The IPA has achieved tremendous growth and success during this time and has created eminent good will in the huge worldwide police community. With your work, you have contributed to equality in the field of police services, and are maintaining close ties with national as well as international police organisations.

IBZ Gimborn is extremely pleased that you have been at our side since our foundation in 1969. The IPA has contributed to the benefits of its members in general and to the benefit of the IBZ. On many occasions, the IPA has played - and continues to play - a vital role in promoting the IBZ’s educational work.

With your support, internationalisation has become real in Gimborn. Arthur Troop Scholars from all over the world have been joining international seminars at the IBZ ever since they were implemented.

Devoted IPA members from abroad come to international seminars as participants and lecturers. If it were not for the ongoing work of the IPA, these international meetings would not take place.
As an international organisation representing police officers from all ranks around the world, you bring together those who care for our communities and want to do their bit to make this world a better place. Friendships are being built, with many of them lasting a lifetime. It is your marvellous and appreciable efforts that make all this possible. We believe that the IPA will continue to progress in implementing its mission of enhancing friendship and cooperation among police officers and organisations around the world.

The IBZ is looking forward to continuing its efforts together with the IPA to build bridges between countries, and to bring together police officers in our premises on the grounds of learning and understanding each other in a world full of challenges.

IBZ Gimborn takes this opportunity to congratulate the board and the leadership on a wonderful journey of 70 years of success and growth. We wish the IPA continued success in the future, reaching to new heights in the coming days, and we look forward to continuing to work together in decades to come.
