MAP Mission

The Metropolitan Alliance of Police  was developed in the early 1980’s to meet the growing labor needs of law enforcement officers and related law enforcement employees. MAP’s mission was to provide collective bargaining and promote the advancement of police labor issues. 

Though our primary membership remains law enforcement, over the years MAP has grown to represent all aspects of public employees. In addition to sworn law enforcement and non-sworn law enforcement MAP proudly represents 911 Telecommunicators, Public Works employees, office staff and other public sector employees.

MAP does not use Business Agents, every MAP chapter regardless of size is assigned a Labor Attorney to handle  contract bargaining, interest and grievance arbitrations and other union issues. MAP’s philosophy has always been, since the employer uses an attorney our chapters should have one also.

Our staff, board and attorneys have made MAP one of the premier labor unions in Illinois. 

Our mission has been and always will be to provide our members with the best union services available.
