Giving back to our community

When your officers aren't patrolling the streets, they're working off-duty to be a part of the community by volunteering and giving back to our residents.

The Palo Alto POA is proud to be involved with the Special Olympics Torch Run, Tip a Cop, and Polar Bear Plunge, among other charitable organizations and endeavors.

We encourage our neighbors to join us in giving back to the community by participating in these charitable endeavors with us. We're humbled by the opportunity to serve you, and work every day to uphold our oath and keep Palo Alto's streets safe.
