Special Announcement

In October, MAP was proud to celebrate its 40th anniversary of being Maine's Voice of Law Enforcement. What started in 1975 as a small committed group of officers wanting a better voice in their working conditions as well as a fraternal concern for other officers, has become the state's largest police association, representing over 975 police officers and dispatchers from Houlton to Eliot. In those 40 years, MAP has held to its traditions of being a “By cop, for cop” organization and representing our member units on a one on one, exclusive basis. There are few other organizations anywhere that provides the level of service and contact that MAP has been proud to maintain for the last 40 years.

Thank you to our founders and members past and present who have made MAP the organization it is today. Stay safe!
