The VPOA is a volunteer group of Victoria Police Department officers who give back to the community through service projects and donations.

The Victoria Police Officers Association, a volunteer group of Victoria Police Department officers, is volunteering to paint reflective address numbers on residents’ curbs to help improve emergency response times.

There is no cost for the service, but VPOA will accept donations to help with its programs. Residents who would like to have curbs painted in their neighborhoods or who would like to make a donation may contact VPOA at victoriapoa.306@gmail.com or on Facebook at Victoria Police Officers Association & Blue Santa.

May 8, officers will go door to door in requested neighborhoods to ask residents if they want to have their curbs painted. The association hopes to continue painting curbs on a quarterly basis.

The Victoria Police Officers Association gives back to the community through service projects and donations. The association recently delivered more than 50 Easter baskets to children in local hospitals and foster care.
