Mission Statement

The Santa Clara County Peace Officers’ Association provides services to many organizations within Santa Clara County including underprivileged, disadvantaged, and/or at-risk youth in order to interact in a positive way with law enforcement officers while using our property.

Youth Outreach

The SCCPOA Board Members organize and volunteer to work with our Campership Program, structured group outings with at-risk youth camping at our property. These campouts promote positive interaction between these at-risk youth and the law enforcement officers. This includes youngsters who may even have had a "brush" with the law, and may not necessarily have a positive feeling about law enforcement Officers from different agencies volunteer to "work" at the camp outs and this allows close contact between these youngsters and a law enforcement officer.

For the most part these youngsters come from our local satellite group homes. Chaperones from the group home involved are required to attend. The Girl scouts, Boy Scouts and cub scouts use the property on a regular basis. Additionally, our campground and property is open all year.
