In 1993, the GCPAAA was founded as a stand-alone, non-profit 501(c)3 organization. The group is independent of the Garland Police Department, but exists to provide an avenue for continued involvement for the CPA graduates who wish to give back to their department and community. The GCPAAA is an all-volunteer organization comprised of people whose interest in law enforcement and appreciation of the Garland Police Department brings them together in service.
