Donation of equipment to law enforcement agencies with a particular emphasis on those which have reserve or auxiliary units.
Providing training opportunities to reserve, auxiliary and special law enforcement officers at conferences and other venues.
Serving as a contact point and clearing house for information on reserve and auxiliary law enforcement programs.

The RESERVE POLICE OFFICERS ASSOCIATION is proud to have a cobblestone inscribed with our name listed on the electronic directory at the 9/11 Memorial Plaza, in recognition of our organization's recent contribution to the 9/11 Memorial & Museum, which receives little public funding for its upkeep. NYPD auxiliary officers were mobilized right after the 9/11 attack to assist career officers during the emergency.
