Furthermore, Chicago Patrolmen’s has increased its reach through strategic partnerships and co-op shared branching agreements with other police credit unions.

Even as its membership expands, the Credit Union remains true to its original mission of meeting the financial needs of law enforcement families, and this strategy has proven itself by increasing steadily over time.
