Your local lodge is a fraternal organization made up of law enforcement officers from the local community. The local lodge is an independent body in the conduct of its own affairs. The local lodge officers are elected from the membership of the lodge. Each local lodge has its own set of Constitution and By-laws approved by the National Constitution and By-laws Committee. Each lodge is a member of the State Lodge and is represented at the state board meetings and conferences by state trustees and delegates elected by the local lodge.
Active Membership is open to any full time law enforcement officer with arrest power who is employed by or retired from a government entity, regardless of rank. Associate Membership is extended to individuals associated with Law Enforcement.
FOP membership provides each member access to an organization that supports fraternalism among law enforcement professionals, along with numerous benefits that accompany affiliation with a national organization of over 325,000 police officers. The Washington State FOP provides a wide range of member benefits to assist our Brothers and Sisters in Law Enforcement.
