SPFPA Local 444 Who We Are

We are one of the largest  SPFPA locals within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Division. Our officers are highly trained in a variety of security skills. Our officers are security police professionals that put their lives on the line to protect our nation's assets. We protect thousands of wokers who work at Federal facilities throughout the states Philadelphia - Maryland - Virginia - Washington DC.

Why do we exist? We are here because the men and women that protect these auto plants felt that we didn't have an even playing field in respect to wages, promotions, and working conditions. Now, most importantly, we have a voice in our future. Our primary goal is to provide consistent and innovated services to our members by creating avenues that will educate and assist our members to maximize those benefits under the Collective Bargaining Agreement.
