Michigan Association of Police

Executive Board Treasurer

Allen Park Patrol Officer Christopher Franco had only been a MAP member for about nine months when he was elected as MAP Executive Board Treasurer in December 2023. Franco helped lead the charge for Allen Park Police Officers Association (POA) to unionize, voting to join MAP in March of 2023. First elected to Allen Park POA’s Board in May 2022 as Secretary/Treasurer, he served in the dual position for seven months. He was elected as Local Union’s President in January 2023, assisting in the group’s first MAP-represented contract negotiations. His motivation to expand his labor relations knowledge as much as possible led him to seek a seat on MAP’s Executive Board. Franco has served with Allen Park Police Department since 2014, working as a K9 Officer since 2016. He is also a Field Training Officer (FTO), Firearms Instructor and Armorer. Franco was a Detroit Police Officer from 2009-2013, serving in the Special Operations Unit for 1-1/2 years. For one year prior to joining Allen Park PD, he served as a Patrol Officer and FTO for the City of Wayne Police Department.
