DMPOCU Name Change

Same leadership, same staff, same service.

We will still be there for you just as we’ve always been.

We are still your credit union!


Quality products will continue to grow, giving you greater access to the things you need.

The financial industry is constantly changing, we want to make sure we change with it.


Supporting and promoting organizations and events that are important to our members is important to us.

Look for us to expand our community support.  We are a part of our community and want to be here to serve and support it for years to come.


Our credit union has never been stronger.  This gives us a great opportunity to grow from a position of strength.


This growth has led to a new modern branch location coming soon to Urbandale.


The total number of credit unions are dropping as smaller credit unions are merging with larger ones.  The average size of CU’s has increased, this means we must grow to keep pace.


In Iowa the stats are no different, fewer credit unions and the size of the average credit union is growing.


Over the past few years our membership has really expanded.  Our recent mergers with USDA and Polk County School Employees credit unions have opened up opportunities for people to join our credit union who haven’t been able to before.


These changes have left us with a far more diverse field of membership.  Helping to make us stronger and give us a greater chance to be around for years to come.


We are still a closed segment credit union serving public safety professionals, governmental employees, school employees and their families.

All of these professions have common traits that make them unique to our credit union.

When creating a name for our credit union moving forward we focused on keeping it simple while still paying respect and honor to our history.

We want our new name to be inclusive and let a broader section of the community know that we can serve them.

Beginning in July 2017 Des Moines Police Officers’ Credit Union will officially change it’s name to:



Q: Why did we change our name?
