The Dallas Police Officer’s Political Action Committee (DPOPAC) was established in 1986, as the political arm of the DPA. A general purpose PAC, which reports to the Texas Ethics Commission, the DPOPAC is highly active in local and state politics. By Lobbying at City Hall and in Austin, the DPOPAC gives members a major presence with a clear and unified voice. Activities include representing members during legislative sessions; contributions and endorsements to candidates for local/state office; advocating for pay, benefits and working conditions before City leadership. In its 20+ year history, the DPOPAC has been instrumental in increasing pay and benefits and helping to implement changes to the Penal Code and Juvenile Code, just to name a few. DPOPAC participation is strictly voluntary. Direct payroll deduction makes contributing easy. We strongly encourage your participation in this very important activity.
