Welcome to IPA Japan Section

The International Police Association is very interesting organization. This fraternal organization is dedicated to unite in service and friendship all active and retired members of police force. The IPA strives to enhance the image of the police in our country. We facilitate international cooperation through friendly contacts among police officers of all over the world.

Membership now exceeds 383,000 officers in over 61 countries and is steadily rising. IPA was formed by Arthur TROOP in England in 1950. IPA Japan was formed and recognized in 1962.

The purpose of our organization is strictly cultural, social and recreational.
The IPA does not take part in any matter of departmental policy like investigation in police works. This organization creates an opportunity for cultural exchange and contacts on a local, national and international level. The IPA is a wonderful organization for members and their families who wish to travel anywhere in the world.
