The mission of the National Latino Officers Association (“NLOA”) is to promote tolerance toward and understanding of the Latino culture in all public and private agencies, especially in the law enforcement community. The organization aims to create strong bonds between the Latino community and other law enforcement agencies and to ensure equal representation in hiring and promotional practices. We also strive to ensure that members work in an environment that is in compliance with all equal employment opportunity rules and regulations; an environment free of discrimination, hostility, retaliation, and sexual harassment.
