The Toronto Police Association (TPA) is governed by a board of nine serving uniform and civilian members of the Toronto Police Service. The TPA Constitution and By-laws provide the democratic framework through which the voting membership elect their peers to serve in leadership roles in the TPA.

The Toronto Police Association is managed by a full-time board of nine directors who make key decisions on behalf of the membership. The Board of Directors consists of a President, Vice-President, Director of Member Benefits, Director of Administrative Services, two Civilian Field Services Directors and three Uniform Field Services Directors. 

The purpose of the board is to provide the Association with direction and advice. It is their responsibility to ensure that the Association fulfils its mission statement and in doing so, it frequently sets the Association ’s strategic direction. The duties and responsibilities of each position are described within the Constitution. In addition to their constitutional duties, the Board of Directors is actively involved in priority setting, strategic planning, policy development, financial oversight and political engagement.
