Fraternal Order of Police
Treasure Coast Lodge 41
Fort Pierce, FL St. Lucie

What is the FOP?

The Fraternal Order of Police, founded in 1915 in Pittsburgh, Pa., experience tremendous growth and rapidly expanded from those first two police officers.  Over the years it has grown into the nation's largest police organization with over 328,000 members in over 2,100 lodges in 50 states and internationally to Ireland.

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 the difficulties faced by today's police officers better than another officer, and no one knows police officers better than the FOP.

Membership is open to all full-time and retired law enforcement officers regardless of race, sex, creed, religion or rank. The Grand Lodge is governed by trustees, representatives from each State Lodge, and an Executive Board, which is elected bi-annually at a National Conference.


To support and defend the Constitution of the United States, and the State of Florida, to inculcate loyalty and allegiance to the United States of America; to promote and foster the impartial enforcement of law and order, to improve the individual proficiency of our members in the performance of their duties, to encourage social, charitable, educational activities among all law enforcement officers, to advocate and strive for uniform application of the Civil Service and merit system for all law enforcement officers, to create a tradition of esprit de corps insuring fidelity to duty under all conditions and circumstances, to cultivate a spirit of fraternalism and mutual helpfulness among our membership and the people we serve; to increase the efficiency of the police profession and thus more firmly establish the confidence of the public in the service that is dedicated to the protection of life and property.
