About the La Mesa Police Officers Association

The La Mesa Police Officers Association represents the sworn police officers, community service officers, dispatchers, animal control officer and property clerks of the La Mesa Police Department. We represent all positions and represent all ranks within the department, including the Chief of Police.  Our mission is to care for the well being and working conditions of our members, supporting them in any way possible both at work and at home to ensure our members can provide the best quality policing to our community.


It is with profound sadness that we have come to learn of the passing of one of our former members, Bob Lowry.  Bob is a veteran of the United States Coast Guard where he served before becoming a police officer here at La Mesa in the 1980’s.  He served with us until retiring in 2004.  Bob had been dealing with some health issues and was in the process of getting a liver transfer when he died of complications experienced during the surgery.  A Memorial Service is tentatively set for October 5th, 2019.  Details will be updated as things are finalized.  Thank you for your service Officer Lowry.  God speed!
