California Pawnbrokers Association: Upholding Ethics
Welcome to the California Pawnbrokers Association
California Pawnbrokers Association (CAPA) was founded in 1956 by a group of secondhand dealers who wanted to bring together members of the pawning community and help professionalize the industry. We’re the only organization of our kind in the state, and we strive to uphold the highest degree of ethical conduct. We do this by adhering to established best practices and following all local, state, and federal laws and regulations. CAPA serves the interests of responsible brokers and dealers in the pawn industry, which numbers in the tens of thousands. We actively carry this out through professional education, legal resources, industry programs, and legislative advocacy. Our members earn value and respect from their communities by participating in community outreach programs and cultivating good relationships with community leaders, law enforcement, state legislators, and local government.
