Italian American Police Society of New Jersey

Welcome From President William Schievella


I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the Italian American Police Society of New Jersey's website. The Society was founded in 1985 and is New Jersey's largest police fraternal organization. The Society is comprised of more than four thousand local, county, state and federal law enforcement officers from throughout the state. The Society was founded with the purpose of promoting the role of Italian Americans in public service as well as enhancing public safety while supporting the law enforcement community.
Each year the Society hosts a number of charitable and social events to promote camaraderie and enhance the lives of our members. The Society is proud to support such important causes such as Special Olympics NJ, college scholarship program, police safety equipment give away project and many other social and educational programs. I am proud to have served as a law enforcement executive for twenty eight years and have led the Italian American Police Society of New Jersey since its inception.

I am blessed to have an outstanding Executive Board to lead the finest men and women in law enforcement.
