RPPOA Director Nathan Smith Visits CDFW Cadets at Academy in Butte County

OROVILLE – In an effort to introduce the Resource Protection Peace Officers Association (RPPOA) and the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) to California Department of Fish and Wildlife  (CDFW) warden cadets, RPPOA Treasurer and Director Nate Smith assisted CSLEA Membership Services Representatives George Pina and Marco Castro in conducting a new employee orientation at the  CDFW Academy in Butte County on January 12, 2018.

The 42 cadets in attendance listen to presentations about union representation and the CSLEA $1.7 million Legal Defense Fund.  In addition, CSLEA’s benefits and services were discussed, along with benefits and services provided with membership to the Fraternal Order of Police.

“Today we welcomed 41 cadets to RPPOA and CSLEA membership,” said CSLEA President Alan Barcelona.  “It is so important for law enforcement officers to have the support of a strong association such as ours.   In 2017, one of our peace officers learned the value of CSLEA membership and its Legal Defense Fund after a local district attorney pursued criminal charges against him for doing what any other off-duty peace officer would have done in his situation.  He was not only acquitted by a jury, but we got his peace-officer job back.  I can’t stress enough the importance of CSLEA membership.”
