Our most important asset is our members. We are comprised of a diverse group of police officers, deputy sheriffs, detention officers, state troopers, and state & federal agents. The uniforms we wear may be different but our goal is the same - to serve and protect the community.
The FOP is an organization of cops representing cops. We are a united voice within Charlotte-Mecklenburg working together for better wages, benefits, and working conditions. We work on legislation to make our communities safer. But the Fraternal Order of Police is more. We offer training, leadership, and support for our members.
The FOP provides benefits and services to our members including representation, scholarships, disaster relief and so much more to empower our members.
Every day, law enforcement officers may be called upon to make a split-second decision that is life changing; one that will be questioned and reviewed over and over again. With the FOP Legal Defense program, our members are secure with the knowledge that we stand behind them, every member, one-hundred percent of the time.
The FOP is a fraternity of law enforcement professionals working together for each other, our families, and the community to make Charlotte-Mecklenburg, North Carolina a better place to visit, live, work, and raise a family.
Our organization is driven by the membership and all members are encouraged to attend our monthly meetings to set the direction and future of our Lodge. Over the past ten years the Local, State, and National FOP have become involved in political endorsements to better represent our membership. We work to elect public officials that have law enforcement professionals in mind when making decisions and laws that affect safety & livelihood.
Our Lodge is over 2,000 members strong; made up of law enforcement professionals serving in virtually every agency in the county and many state and federal agencies too. Join our brothers and sisters and become a part of the Fraternal Order of Police.
