Those in law enforcement share a bond that few outsiders could comprehend. As a fraternal organization comprised of individuals actively engaged in law enforcement , we understand. Quoting the mission statement from our Grand Lodge, "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."
The strength of the Fraternal Order of Police is derived from its membership. Our Lodge, which boasts approximately 11,000 active and associate members, has the distinction of being the third largest FOP Lodge in the United States. Regardless of your rank or title, if you are a law enforcement professional or a supporter of the law enforcement community in Washington, DC, we would like to extend a fraternal invitation for you to join our organization as an active or associate member.
In addition, the Fraternal Order of Police Auxiliary is an ancillary organization of law enforcement officers. The Auxiliary is the only national support organization of its kind. Read more about the FOP Lodge #1 Police Auxiliary.
