    Message From SDPD Chief

    On behalf of the dedicated men and women of your San Diego Police Department, I want to thank you for your support of local law enforcement. The San Diego Police Officers Association (SDPOA) provides critical assistance. Through its Widows & Orphans and Memorial Funds, the SDPOA directly helps our brave men and women.

    As your police chief, I deeply appreciate this crucial backup. Our officers run toward danger so you don’t have to. Nothing ever prepares us for losing people in the line of duty, but your support reassures them that their families will be taken care of if tragedy strikes.

    A strong bond exists between local law enforcement and the people we serve, knitting us together and creating a safer community for all. It is an honor to be your police chief, and I encourage you to support the SDPOA. It means so much to all of us with the San Diego Police Department.

    Forever grateful for your generosity,



    Chief Nisleit
