The Sworn Officers' Professional Association of Australia is an employee union which fights to protect you, not promote a political party. Run by practising police officers for police officers. Every membership dollar supports you, your workplace issues, provides legal backup for you. You get a better service for half the price.

We also cover correctional service officers and fire officers.


The Sworn Officers' Professional Association of Australia (SOPAA) is an industrial association of employees, whose principal purpose is to protect and promote the interests of members in matters concerning their employment. We are a non-party political alternative to the Police Federation of Australia and their respective State divisions.
