The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #9 was established on December 15th, 1969. There are currently over 2,000 members representing local, state and federal agencies in Mecklenburg County, NC. 

Our Lodge is located at 1201 Hawthorne Lane Charlotte, NC and conducts our membership meetings the first Tuesday of each month with a dinner provided before each meeting. The Board meetings are held the third Tuesday of each month and members are welcome to attend. The Lodge takes its direction from the membership, so please attend a membership meeting to voice your concerns and issues as well as contribute toward our organization.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg FOP Lodge #9 is committed to serving the law enforcement officers of Mecklenburg County and building strong relationships with the community and the youth. We continuously work to improve the working conditions for law enforcement officers through education, legislation, and representation. This organization is comprised of law enforcement professionals representing law enforcement professionals. Who else knows the dangers and difficulties faced by officers than other officers. 

Our new website is in place that includes a secured members-only section. The secured section is where we will place information to keep members informed of what is occurring at the Lodge. Feel free to visit ncfoplodge9.com to see the improvements. We are also utilizing Facebook and Twitter to push notifications to those interested in the Lodge. 

Please visit the Lodge or the website to see what all is available to you as a member of Charlotte-Mecklenburg FOP Lodge #9. 

Thank You,

Mark Michalec, President
