The McAllen Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the Combined Law Enforcement Association of Texas has selected McAllen as its host city for its 2025 State Conference.
The September 2025 state conference is expected to draw over 350 visitors to the McAllen Convention Center that could generate an economic impact of over $183,7850. The last time the association selected McAllen for their state conference was in 2012.
With more than 27,000 members across the state, CLEAT is the largest police officers’ union in Texas, the largest legal service provider specializing in representing law enforcement officers, and the largest alliance of local police officers’ associations in Texas.
CLEAT’s mission is that members and Texas Peace Officers receive the professional respect, employment rights, and legal protections they deserve. CLEAT has a rich history of fighting to ensure that all Texas law enforcement professionals earn fair compensation for the critically important work they do, and the sacrifices made daily by their families.
“We thank all the CLEAT Membership for their support and entrusting the McAllen Professional Law Enforcement Association (MPLEA) with hosting the CLEAT Convention in 2025,” MPLEA’s President Sgt. Jesus Regalado Jr said. “We look forward to all our guests enjoying their time visiting our great city of McAllen, Texas. We hope to make the event a memorable one for all to enjoy!”
Throughout the year, the McAllen Chamber’s Tourism Department ‘Convention & Visitors Bureau’ diligently facilitates conferences that attract participants from various industries. These conferences play a significant role in generating substantial revenue for our city.
“We are excited that the Combined Law Enforcement Association of Texas has chosen McAllen for their 2025 Annual Conference. We look forward to hosting the organization and are eager to continue to welcome them back for future meetings and conferences,” said Convention Sales Manager Martiza Muñoz.
