POPAI Membership is open to individuals involved in Community Corrections in Indiana. Often, people think the Associate Level is exclusively for Probation Department administrative staff or students – but there’s more.

Probation Officer Membership – ($25 for 2022 and $30 for 2023) Probation Officer membership is for Certified persons currently employed as Probation Officers in the State of Indiana. These members vote in our elections and can be Board Members.

Associate Membership – ($10 for 2022 and $15 for 2023) Associate membership shall be awarded to individuals who are former Probation Officers in Indiana who do not qualify for a Life Membership; interns or support staff currently involved in the delivery of probation services in Indiana; Community Corrections Officers who are not Certified Probation Officers, and students currently enrolled in a college or university in Indiana with an interest in criminal justice or a related field.

This year, we’ve added the Associate Membership into our Fall Conference Registration to welcome Community Corrections Officers who can benefit from the interesting educational opportunities presented in beautiful French Lick Indiana.
