Federal Probation and Pretrial Officers Association

FPPOA is now over 60 years of age and is the sole representative association dedicated exclusively for staff working in Federal Probation and Pretrial Services. As part of FPPOA's commitment to the Federal Probation and Pretrial Services, we hope that this site is able to provide you with all the information that fits your professional needs. From the outset, the Association has been a major influence in the growth and direction of the Federal Probation and Pretrial Services System. During its early years, the Association contributed to the establishment of an improved, standardized salary plan, influenced a needed increase in the number of officers and served a major function in assuring qualification of officers for hazardous duty retirement.

FPPOA Benevolence Fund

In August of 2019, the Board of FPPOA voted to establish a Benevolence Fund. This memorial fund is our way to honor Federal Probation and Pretrial Officers and to offer assistance to their families who suffer a loss of their loved one. The FPPOA Benevolence Fund was organized with the sole purpose of helping the families of sworn officers of U.S. Probation and Pretrial Services by providing financial relief in the event of a officer’s death. Due to the unforeseen expenses resulting from the untimely loss of a law enforcement loved one, the FPPOA Benevolence Fund was designed to help subsidize these expenses.
