Message From the President
Welcome to the Washington State Fraternal Order of Police (WAFOP) and our official web site. The new website has been created in an effort to keep our members better informed and up to date on local, state and national information that affect law enforcement officers and their families. This website is the ONE VOICE for law enforcement officers in Washington State.
The WAFOP represents over 2,500 law enforcement officers in the state and directly associated by the National FOP with over 335,000 members. The Fraternal Order of Police is the largest professional law enforcement organization in the nation. Our legislative efforts in Washington D.C. and Olympia are largely successful because of the unprecedented national membership and the only professional law enforcement organization that represents all law enforcement, regardless of rank or agency. Our motto is “Cops helping Cops”.
On this web site you will find a host of benefits for members and their families. These are unparalleled and available because of our commitment to provide the very best for law enforcement officers and our members. We strive to have these benefits available for the choosing and with an ala-cart selection for the most part.
Our commitment to helping law enforcement officers in a time of need is very important to us. You will notice a number of programs that we actively participate in to see that we are ready when help is needed. Our support of the Washington State Law Enforcement Memorial, CISM and National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service in Washington D.C. are just a few of the programs we support.
Of course seeing to the welfare of those not as fortunate in our communities is at the core of public service and what we, as a profession, stand for. Simply said, we are very committed to programs that help the less fortunate especially kids, with Special Olympics being near and dear to our hearts.
On behalf of the members in Washington State, and the 335,000 of our closest brothers and sisters across the nation, we appreciate you visiting our web site and thank you for your support.
Fraternally,
Marco Monteblanco
State President

During this time of public uncertainty, it is paramount that public safety be a top priority of all residents in Washington state ranging from public officials to our personal neighbors.  From the steps of the capitol to the halls (virtual) of justice issues related to law enforcement have been some of our state’s biggest issues this week.

The Washington State FOP and our general counsel believe that in many cases municipalities are not able to arbitrarily make these changes without first requesting to bargain the effects of these decisions.

As we have been dealing with the current COVID 19 pandemic, law enforcement has remained on the front lines while putting themselves and their families at higher risk to contract this virus.  It brings me great sadness to report that over 38 of our brothers and sisters have died as a result of complications of the Coronavirus.

If any of our law enforcement guilds in Washington State are hearing that their cities or counties are considering a mandatory reduction in pay, the Washington State FOP official position is that they are required to provide a letter to the guild or association for a demand to bargain as is a change in their collective bargaining agreement that has been signed between the 2 entities.

Law enforcement isn’t required to enforce this order by issuing citations or arresting individuals for breaking this mandate.  Our role is to educate and encourage citizens to stay home.  By staying home we lower contact with individuals that may have contracted the virus, which in turn, helps manage the outbreak.  Remember by staying home we are potentially saving lives.

Not only do our citizens appreciate us but our friends and families also recognize these efforts as well.  Our families understand the sacrifices we make for this job.  It is not uncommon for any of us to sit down with our children and explain why we are asked to do the things we do and thank our partners and children for their sacrifice in their effort to support each of us.

Until all the law enforcement organizations stop having territorial conflicts and come together our profession will continue to suffer.  The Washington State FOP has and will continue to be the calm voices in the room that represents the profession as a whole, not just one demographic.

I encourage our supporters, our elected officials, and all our law enforcement professionals to ask yourselves, “Why shouldn’t I support something that would provide resources to address mental health and wellness for our law enforcement officers.

On behalf of the Washington State Fraternal Order of Police Executive Board we want to wish all of you a happy and safe holiday season.  We have many things to be thankful for this year and it is because of your dedication to this organization that has allowed us to grow truly advocate for all law enforcement in the state of Washington.
