About Us

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide safety, security, and exceptional service for our members financial needs.

History

In 1953, seven Oklahoma Department of Public Safety (DPS) employees recognized the benefits a credit union would provide their coworkers. These founding members were intent on providing affordable financial services for the varied needs of the uniformed Highway Patrol and civilian DPS employees. The founding members pooled their personal resources and applied for a credit union charter. In September 1953, the National Credit Union Administration granted a charter to DPS Federal Credit Union and our credit union began to serve its members.

In September 1957, the credit union's field of membership was expanded to include the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation. The charter was again revised in 1998, 1999, 2005 and 2008 to include the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs, the Alcoholic Beverage Law Enforcement Commission, the Council on Law Enforcement Education and Training, the Office of the State Fire Marshal, the Department of Environmental Quality, and the Office of the Attorney General and their families.

Our credit union was founded as a "not for profit" institution to provide exemplary financial service to our members at the lowest possible cost. Our credit union remains dedicated to this philosophy to this day. Our seven unpaid volunteer Board members represent an equitable cross section of uniformed and civilian employees from the various law enforcement agencies served by our credit union.
