As Chief of Police for the Indio Police Department, I extend a warm welcome to our charity website and encourage your support for our Memorial cause. 


Our department prides itself on being a progressive and innovative force, collaborating closely with community members, businesses, and public service groups to address crime and quality of life issues in Indio neighborhoods. Our dedication to community policing has earned us national recognition as a leader in our field. 


In 2016, we were honored to be selected as one of fifteen agencies nationwide to implement recommendations from the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing. These achievements are a testament to the invaluable partnership we share with our community members in ensuring public safety. 


Having served with the Indio Police Department since January 2018, first as Assistant Chief and now as Chief of Police, I am deeply committed to building upon our past successes and leading our department to further excellence.

Our mission is clear: to safeguard and enhance the quality of life in Indio through traditional and innovative policing methods, while fostering trust and confidence in our department. With our motto, “Our Community...Our Commitment,”  guiding us, we stand united with the residents of Indio to create a safer, stronger community.

Brian Tully,

Indio Chief of Police 

Dear Supporters of the Indio Police Officers, John Rose Memorial:


My name is Jason Polanco and I am the President of the Indio Police Officers Association (IPOA).


Founded in 1967, the IPOA was established as a labor organization to improve the working conditions of the men and women of the Indio Police Department.  Through the years the Indio Police Officer’s Association has maintained its core values in ensuring the rights and benefits of its members while giving back to the community as a non-profit organization.


Currently the IPOA represents all police officers up to the rank of Corporal, and its support staff in the following classifications; Community Service Officer, Dispatcher, Property and Evidence Officers, and Crime Analysts.


Since 2004, the IPOA has had the pleasure of working closely with the memorial and are honored every day in its continuing relationship. The memorial works diligently to raise funds through events such as our annual golf tournament to assist officers, and their families, should they be injured or killed in the line of duty.


Rest assured that your contributions are not spent recklessly or at the helm of a politically driven organization.

Each of the memorial’s trustees and chairman take your contributions seriously and exercise fiscal responsibility in every decision they make.  Because of this the memorial has successfully assisted numerous officers and their families. Additionally, the memorial is extremely proud to have awarded over $10,000 in educational scholarships to officers and their children.


On behalf of the men and women of the Indio Police Officers Association, I would like to thank each and every one of you, because without your generous support our charity would not exist.


The Indio Police Officers Association can be reached by regular mail at:



P.O. Box 2243

Indio, CA 92202

Or via email:



Jason Polanco

President IPOA
