FOP Benefit & Partnerships

The Fraternal Order of Police is the world’s largest organization of sworn law enforcement officers, with over 325,000 members in more than 2,100 lodges. We are the voice of those who dedicate their lives to protecting and serving our communities. We are committed to improving the working conditions of law enforcement officers and the safety of those we serve through education, legislation, information, community involvement and employee representation. No one knows the dangers and difficulties faced by today’s police officers better than another officer, and no one knows police officers better than the FOP. Here’s a quick overview of the wide variety of services and benefits that the FOP offers to its members.

 

Legislative Office

The FOP maintains an office on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., where a full-time professional staff actively lobbies Congress and the administration on the issues most important to rank-and-file law enforcement officers. The National Legislative Program is the most active and comprehensive of any law enforcement organization in Washington, working on behalf of law enforcement officers to ensure that legislation is put into place to improve the lives of officers and their families.

National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service

This solemn event, held every year on the U.S. Capitol Lawn in Washington, D.C., on May 15 during National Police Week, honors those who have given their lives in the line of duty and seeks to assuage the grief of families who have lost a loved one. Open to the public, it brings together the expanded law enforcement family: the survivors, officers and friends whom these heroes have left behind. Our national leaders — including the president of the United States, cabinet members, members of Congress and heads of various enforcement agencies — along with major recording artists join tens of thousands of officers to pay tribute to the fallen and to offer words of comfort to their surviving family members.

FOP Journal

Published four times a year, the FOP Journal is the official publication of the Grand Lodge. Each issue contains reports from the Executive Board and various committees, articles of interest from local lodges and updates on law enforcement labor issues, including progress on legislation from our advocacy center in Washington, D.C.

Education Services

The Education Services Committee is responsible for the development and implementation of professional law enforcement training programs and events. Our goal is to maintain the highest standard in providing quality education and excellence in training. We are committed to equipping law enforcement professionals with the necessary skills to enhance their career development and quality of life. In keeping with our continued commitment to effective labor services, the committee also seeks to provide a comprehensive understanding of the complex legislation impacting law enforcement officers — knowledge crucial to establishing protections from unfair labor practices. We have established a training schedule covering a wide spectrum of leadership, labor and legal issues. We also develop on-site custom training events on these and other topics as needed, upon request by either local or State Lodges. For members, local lodges or State Lodges that may not be in a financial position to afford training or other educational experiences, the Grand Lodge provides scholarships to eligible applicants.

National Fraternal Order of Police University (NFOPU)

Recognizing that four-year and graduate degrees are becoming increasingly important for law enforcement career advancement, the FOP collaborates with a select consortium of universities willing to offer members the education they need with a flexible schedule and reasonable cost. Since its inception in 2007, NFOPU has provided hundreds of FOP members with the opportunity to take courses that accommodate the unique requirements of a working law enforcement officer’s schedule.

Disaster Relief

As a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, the Fraternal Order of Police Disaster Relief Fund, part of the NFOP Foundation, relies on the generosity of individuals, organizations and corporations and is constantly in need of a steady stream of funds. With our members spread throughout the U.S., Canada and Ireland, weather extremes and disasters are an ever-present danger. Tornados, hurricanes, floods, drought and fire inflict significant damage when they do occur, and we need to be prepared to assist our members in distress.
