An ALEU Training program is designed to keep each member appraised of their department's policies. The ALEU places a strong emphasis and priority on the training and development of its members. The IUPA routinely offers training seminars through our education division, the Institute for Police Research (IPR), on issues of both a professional and personal nature such as steward's training and stress reduction. IUPA affiliation also allows members to attend the George Meany Center for Labor Studies. The IUPA Scholarship program offers ten $1,000.00 scholarships to students studying criminal justice, labor relations, or related fields. An additional financial scholarship is also available to members through our affiliation with Union Privilege.
