INTERNATIONAL POLICY ASSOCIATION

FOUNDING IPA SWITZERLAND

With the founding of the two first IPA sections "Suisse-Genève" and "Suisse Friborg" (later called regions) in the year 1955, the IPA section Switzerland was also founded.

The official foundation took place on 9. May 1955.

At the international congress in Paris on 16. and 17. In September 1955, our section and the German section were added to the world's largest association of police officers.

At this memorable meeting in Paris Switzerland was represented by our friends René Goebler, Andre Clerc, André Baumgartner and Marcel Loegan.

According to international statutes, the IPA section Switzerland, as well as our 14 regions, is independent in terms of organization and administration, provided they do not conflict with the international statutes.

Since 1978 the IPA is represented throughout Switzerland and divided into 14 regions :: Genève, Friborg, Vaud, Neuchâtel-Jura-Jura bernois, Valais, Berne, Biel & surroundings, Zurich, Central Switzerland, Ticino, Solothurn, Eastern Switzerland, Beider Basel and Aargau.

Currently the section Switzerland counts more than 17'000 members.

FOUNDER OF IPA SWITZERLAND

The founder of IPA Switzerland is René Goebler of the Sûréte in Geneva, who had contact with French and English IPA colleagues during a trip to Paris. These convinced René Goebler that the Swiss police officers should no longer wait to join the IPA.

At this time, East Germany, Belgium and the Scandinavian countries were already part of the IPA. René Goebler founded the IPA Geneva section with great enthusiasm and great dynamism.

ORGANIZATION OF IPA SWITZERLAND

According to international statutes, the IPA Section Switzerland, as well as our 14 regions, is independent in terms of organization and administration, provided they do not conflict with the international statutes.
