Letter from the president

The Fontana Police Officers Association is a professional police association which is Connected with the Community of the greater Fontana area.

The 170 police officers, detectives and corporals who make up the Fontana POA, regularly volunteer our time and treasury to help make Fontana a better place to live, work, play and invest.

At the center of our commitment to community-connection is our mobile barbecue which was acquired through the generous help of several organizations including the Fontana Chamber of Commerce, Fontana Rotary Club, Fontana Exchange Club and local businesses.

We believe one of the best ways build trust is to get to know people one-on-one.  Nothing does that better than sitting down together and sharing a meal.

We regularly provide meals at Ronald McDonald House for the families of children who are patients at Loma Linda University and other local hospitals.

We regularly provide meals at community events including Love Fontana, National Night Out, Fontana Senior Center, local schools and faith-based organizations.

We partner with the Concerned Citizens for the Development of North Fontana, a local historic civil rights organization, on the Chillin’ N Grillin’ community barbecue.

We partner with a coalition of service clubs to provide Christmas gifts for the children of families who are struggling financially.

We partner with Target, the City of Fontana and other organizations to provide shopping for children of struggling families during the holidays.

Each year we support young people with scholarships including the Miss Fontana Scholarship Pageant.  We support and volunteer at the Special Olympics held here in Fontana and numerous other community events.

Our Board of Directors has been named by the Police Department as Officers of the Month, by the City of Fontana as Fontana Heroes and by our local member of the Assembly as one of the top non-profit organizations of the year.

We are grateful for the positive recognition particularly in a time when there is so much adverse attention in the media.

Our focus is to provide the best police services to the people of our City and region.  Thank you for taking the time to learn about the Fontana POA.

Respectfully,

JASON DELAIR, President

FONTANA POLICE OFFICERS ASSOCIATION
