|Mission||The Caprock Peace Officers Association considers community, education and fellowship to be a few of the elements we have built our foundation upon. Our purpose is to provide members with access to the highest quality leadership development, training and Continuing Law Enforcement Education opportunities. We will strive to have an open dialogue with our elected officials regarding progress of legislative initiatives affecting local, state and federal law enforcement. The CPOA Scholarship fund will continue to award college scholarships to deserving applicants wishing to further their education.|
The Caprock Peace Officers Association was founded in 1949 by Cecil Fox - Texas Parks & Wildlife, Charlie Kimmel - Dickens County Sheriff, Horace Cage - Dickens County Deputy, V.C. Smart - Spur resident, Horace Wood - ranch owner & Dickens County Sheriff’s Posse, and J.R. Whitmire - Texas Highway Patrol. The original site of the meeting was located at the Wood Ranch on the south bank of The Salt Fork of the Brazos River. It is located between the cities of Post and Jayton in the area known as Clairemont, Texas. The purpose of the meeting was to focus on the need and benefits of collaboration within local and regional law enforcement. The CPOA was designed to facilitate competitive fun and fellowship among its members with its annual Rattlesnake Rodeo, which attract officers and civilians from all over the Texas panhandle and The Big Country. The CPOA remains the predominant law enforcement association designed to enhance interagency interaction in West Texas while giving back to the communities we serve. Beginning in 2018, membership will open to all law enforcement and civilians statewide.
