The goals of the RPES are as follows :

To aid law enforcement and Irish charities and organizations.

The first Emerald Society was established in 1953 in New York City. The primary Goal at the time was to inculcate and preserve in its members the heritage of their Gaelic culture. Since that time, numerous Emerald Societies have been established nationwide. Membership within these various Emerald Societies now exceeds 25,000 members.
