MAP Announces the Passing of A Good Friend and Mentor William "Bill" Troubh

It is with deep sadness that the Maine Association of Police announces the death of Bill Troubh on November 8th, 2013. There is no one person that MAP owes its existence to more than Bill, who brought a small group of police officers together in 1975 to create a better voice for Maine Law Enforcement.

Important Announcement from MPERS-UPDATED 03/12/2013

The following overview summarizes the changes that are being recommended by the Participating Local District Advisory Committee (PLD Committee). Changes in rates were submitted to the MainePERS Board of Trustees for approval and implementation. The remaining changes require legislative approval and were submitted to the Legislature in January, 2013 to meet the cloture requirement.

3rd Notice of Dues Increase

A dues increase of $1.00 per week was approved by the full board of directors at their meeting on June 26th, 2014 in South Portland.

A dues authorization sheet  will have to be filled out by each member to help prepare for the change and to have your municipality begin deducting the new amount starting JANUARY 1st, 2015.

Download Dues Authorizaton Sheet HERE:


This small increase will bring MAP’s base dues to $9.00 per week, per member and will not go into effect until January 1st, 2015.  The board has been very diligent and mindful in its work to keep member costs down and still provide the most services an opportunities it can. As other organizations make yearly assessments of dues, or tie their dues structure to an individual member’s pay, MAP has been mindful of its members economic situation and always attempts to keep dues stable, with our last dues increase taking place over two years ago in March of 2012.

However, there is a business and financial reality that drives our ability to operate as a business, including fluctuating legal costs; all driven by member use. The board looked at our current situation as well as future plans and determined that the times necessitated this modest increase. The board then took into account the potential impact to members and chose to postpone the increase until January 1st to give members an opportunity to prepare for the increase

As we get closer to the New Year, subsequent notices and reminders will be sent out as well as updated dues authorization forms which will be necessary to have your municipality or local treasurer to begin deducting the new dues on January 1st.

Thank you for your support of the work that is being done every day on behalf of MAP’s members throughout the state. Your support, both fraternally and through your dues keeps our organization strong and it is greatly appreciated.

Stay Safe,

Paul Gaspar

MAP Executive Director
