MAP was developed to meet the growing needs of police related employees in the area of collective bargaining, to provide due process for our law enforcement members, and to promote the advancement of police labor issues that were not being met by other police labor groups. Joseph Andalina, a 26-year police veteran with more than 35 years experience in the police labor field, originally conceived and established MAP in the early 1980’s. Over the years, it has now, with its staff, board and attorneys, risen to a premier labor union in Illinois.
MAP is an organization composed
of sworn police officers and other
police-related employees who maintain full or part time employment with any state, county, or municipal agency. We have joined together to form a more professional voice in law enforcement.
What is MAP?
Only full time sworn police officers or police-related employees who are active or retired may hold office. Membership is open to individuals as well as associations who may affiliate with us for collective bargaining or legal defense. Associations or units wishing to utilize our collective bargaining programs should sign collective bargaining interest cards. There are two ways to establish a chapter for bargaining, depending on whether your group is new or has a current labor organization representing you.

New novel by one of our own—
Chicago Police Officer, Kelly McMullin, has a new novel out with a sequel coming out next year. His book is entitled "Leaving Bones Behind." It should be an enjoyable read for the copper in all of us.
Give it a try. It’s available at Barnes and Noble, and of course, Amazon.
Here at MAP we wish all our cop writers, bloggers, and authors the very best and much success.
