The Wisconsin Professional Police Association is the largest law enforcement labor union in the state, representing local police, sheriff’s deputies and other officers. It serves almost 11,000 active and retired members in 380 locals. It does not represent Milwaukee police officers, who are covered by a separate union. The WPPA engages in collective bargaining and legislative lobbying.
