The Barrington Police and Fire Benevolent Association (BPFBA) is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit association of 23 member officers from the Barrington Police Department and 18 member fire fighter/paramedics from the Barrington Fire Department that acts as the liaison between the Police and Fire Departments and the community. The Association’s objectives are benevolent, charitable, civic, patriotic, educational and assisting in community endeavors.

Our Programs

Annually, the BPFBA fulfills our mission through our “Shop with a Cop” programs and by awarding scholarships to graduating seniors of Barrington High School. The BPFBA also makes donations and supports Barrington’s Relay for Life, Special Olympics and supports police officers & fire fighters and their families dealing with illnesses. These are just some of the ways the BPFBA touches the lives of families living in the Barrington Area throughout the year.


A huge "thank you" to our sponsors! We couldn't do the great work we do without you!
