EAPA is a fully registered Voluntary Organisation in Malta
The European Auxiliary Police Association (EAPA) is a fully registered Voluntary Organisation in Malta.
The aim of EAPA is to provide support services to the community, the Police Force, the Army and Civil Protection in Malta by connecting those people who are devoted to help these organisations with voluntary work.
The precursors to the Auxiliary Police were organised primarily during times of war, when police officers were drafted into service, leaving the city with a diminished police force.
EAPA promotes public safety
EAPA promotes the safety of its Auxiliary Police officers by requiring that they not pursue dangerous situations, but rather to remove themselves from such danger immediately. During training, recruits are repeatedly told that their purpose is to be the “eyes and ears” of the Police Department, and they are not required to enforce the law.
