The California Association of Highway Patrolmen is, at its heart, a labor union that advocates on behalf of uniformed California Highway Patrol officers in matters related to pay, benefits and working conditions. But ultimately, we are so much more. Dedicated to serving all our members – including active officers at all ranks, retired CHP officers and survivors – the CAHP constantly strives to ensure we are a trusted leader in membership advocacy. As such, we maintain a host of benefit programs built exclusively for our members and their families, including self-insured health, dental and long-term disability plans, plus sponsored life and AD&D insurance plans. In addition, we provide services to our membership including legal services in employment disciplinary matters, an exemplary legislative advocacy program and a retirement planning assistance program. And, finally, we publish a membership newsletter (the APB) and a website dedicated to focusing on issues important to our membership.
The CAHP, which was founded in 1920, holds a philosophy that is deeply rooted in collaborative-based initiatives. Currently, we are working with the California Highway Patrol on a public trust initiative that is aimed at ensuring the CHP’s historically high level of trust from the public is never taken for granted and, where possible, is improved upon. As such, the CAHP and the CHP aspire to be an example for all law enforcement officers and their employers who strive to provide the public the highest level of service.
