MEMBERSHIP

~WHY SHOULD I JOIN THE ALLIANCE ? WHAT CAN THEY DO FOR ME?~

THE INDIANA STATE POLICE ALLIANCE NEEDS YOU AS A MEMBER!

Greater membership means more credibility. When the Indiana State Police Alliance speaks for you, improving communications with the membership, everyone contributing their individual ideas and concerns, it permits the Indiana State Police Alliance to accomplish more for the group. We welcome your ideas and constructive criticism. Stay in touch: 1-800-382-1104. The following are benefits of the Indiana State Police Alliance membership:

Insurance - The ISPA will pay $10,000 to the beneficiary designated on the most recent ISPA membership application or beneficiary card when an active ISPA member expires in the line of duty. The ISPA will pay $3,000 for a non-line of duty death. The ISPA will pay $500 when the spouse, natural child or legally adopted child of an active ISPA member dies. Upon notification of the line of duty death of a National Troopers Coalition member (all active ISPA members are NTC members), the Treasurer of the NTC will immediately forward a check from the NTC Foundation in the amount of $2500 to the beneficiary of the deceased member, as identified by the NTC member organization (ISPA).

The PE 1395 Fund – The fund was established by former Indiana State Trooper Joe Wagoner. The fund is to benefit any Indiana State Police Trooper killed in the line of duty. This will be in addition to the $10,000 line of duty death benefit provided to Indiana State Police Alliance (ISPA) members. Joe was a trooper in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s. He left the Indiana State Police to pursue a career with the FBI. At the time of Joe’s retirement from the FBI, he lived in California where he still resides. While the Indiana State Police gave Joe his start in the field of law enforcement, he wanted to give back to the department that he still loves. Joe stated “I still bleed Indiana State Police blue”. Joe contacted the ISPA with the idea of starting a death benefit fund for those killed in the line of duty. After talking with Joe and the ISPA financial advisor, getting the details specified, and getting the initial funding, it was decided to name this death benefit the “PE 1395 Fund”, after Joe’s PE number. Joe endowed the fund with an initial donation of $50,000. One of Joe’s requests was that this benefit be available to ALL members of the Indiana State Police and not just ISPA members. The ISPA has honored this request.

The Indiana State Police Alliance, on behalf of all Indiana State Police Alliance members and Indiana State Police Troopers, would like to thank Joe Wagoner. The support shown by Joe for those men and women who put their lives on the line every day is truly incredible. The ISPA is proud and honored to call Joe Wagoner one of “INDIANA’S FINEST”.

Thank you Joe.

Legal Assistance - The ISPA will assist members with legal expenses when related to official duties and/or responsibilities. When a critical incident happens, such as a police action shooting, your ISPA provided attorney will immediately contact you.

National Troopers Coalition - The ISPA is a member of the National Troopers Coalition (NTC) representing approximately forty-three (43) states and 44,000 troopers across the country and Alaska. The ISPA is able to gain national credibility through the NTC. We also receive and provide information concerning benefits, compensation and programs beneficial to you. No other association representing Indiana State Troopers is a member of the NTC.

Miscellaneous – We also have various discounts from time to time on things such as carpet/flooring, rental cars, hotel stays, Orlando vacation home, etc. We are always looking for ways to save you money!

Legislative - Collectively, we have made some real progress with the Department and the Legislature. We are the only association that has a full time lobbyist that represents our members at the local legislative level. The Alliance is also the only organization that can represent our hard working State Troopers. With very hard work, in 2007, the ISPA was able to secure a large pay raise for all of our members. We look forward to more success in the future. The Indiana State Police Alliance is working hard to improve your conditions!

The dues are $11 per pay check or can be paid all at once, $286 annually. Through the state auditor’s office, the membership dues can be deducted directly from your pay check.
