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, founded in 1985, is a fraternal, professional and charitable organization, comprised of more than four thousand local, county, state and federal law enforcement officers from throughout New Jersey.

Each year our members work hard in communities throughout our State to protect and serve those in need. Our organization is proud to have supported such important causes such as Special Olympics NJ, Big Brothers and Big Sisters of NJ and New Jersey Veterans Network. Our college scholarship program provides financial assistance to college bound students with more than $300,000 being awarded to date. Our Police Safety Equipment program provides law enforcement equipment to protect themselves and save lives. This past year our organization has dedicated resources to supporting healthcare heroes, first responders and law enforcement officers during the Pandemic. 

I am proud to serve as a law enforcement executive 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.
