The Hellenic American Police Association (HAPA) is a not-for-profit, police ethnic association founded and dedicated to representing law enforcement officers of Hellenic heritage. HAPA was founded in 1993, in the City of Chicago by Elias Voulgaris of the Chicago Police Department, who saw a need for a fraternal organization, which embraced law enforcement officers of Hellenic heritage. With this as its purpose a constitution and by-laws were adopted. HAPA is chartered by the State of Illinois and recognized by the Chicago Police Department.
HAPA is comprised of active and retired law enforcement officers of Hellenic heritage. While most of our members are CHicago Police Officers, the HAPA is open to and welcomes all law enforcement officers of Hellenic heritage. We are one of only three such associations. The others are the St. Paul’s Society of the NYPD, and the Metropolitan Police Service Greek Staff Association of the Metropolitan Police Service, London, England. We maintain brotherly ties with both associations.
