Why should I join?
Quit throwing your money away!
Many of our lodge members were active in other police organizations but chose Jim Fogleman Lodge 50 Inc for our low membership dues and professional response to critical incidents and disciplinary cases. With the exception of our Legal Aid Representative, Jim Fogleman Lodge 50 Inc is staffed by a non-compensated board of directors elected every two years by the active members. There are no high-paid “executives”. No other police association offers so much for so little. Don't rely on false or misleading information aimed at discouraging your decision to join. Scare tactics and bullying went out the window decades ago. We want you to make an informed decision and choose the best organization to represent you.
The Fraternal Order of Police was founded and continues to operate as a representative organization. You have a voice and vote in all matters in your lodge. As an active member, you direct the efforts of your lodge. You decide what programs and benefits are right for you. You elect your officers to represent you. Whether in labor, legislation, education or fraternalism, your voice, and the voices of your fellow members, is the voice of the Fraternal Order of Police.
Please allow us to be your voice by joining.
