SDPOA Annual Thanksgiving Meal for On-Duty Members

The San Diego Police Officers Association hosts a dinner for all SDPOA members who give up time with their families on Thanksgiving in order to protect our communities. Historically, and with staffing permitting, the Chief’s office has approved flexibility in Code Seven (dinner break) policies to allow officers from throughout the City to come to the POA office for a traditional Thanksgiving meal. Members are encouraged to bring their immediate families to join them for a traditional Thanksgiving feast of turkey and trimmings. This event gives on-duty officers a chance to enjoy the holiday and spend time with their peers and family members.

If you would like to sponsor a meal for an officer or donate to this event, please contact Anne at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

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
