A Voice Across America
The Fraternal Order of Police is the largest and most commanding voice on behalf of our nation's law enforcement officers. Our proud organization was founded in 1915 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Its main goal was to improve the working conditions of police there, who were working 12 hour shifts, 365 days a year. Since then, it has grown to over 2,100 local lodges with 325,000 members across our great land.
From Massachusetts to California, from Florida to Minnesota, members of the FOP are speaking out on behalf of their fellow officers--the men and women who serve our communities and protect our nation's freedoms. No one knows the dangers and difficulties faced by police officers in today's society better than another police officer. For this reason, the FOP is proud of
its tradition of "Police Representing Police." This is also the reason that more labor contracts are negotiated by FOP lodges than any other professional police association.
The North Dakota Fraternal Order of Police (NDFOP) was founded in 1993, is a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of law enforcement in the state of North Dakota. Membership is open to all law enforcement officers across the great state of North Dakota.
The Primary objectives of the NDFOP are to serve the over 1,000 current members by providing support, training and fellowship as well as enhancing the level of law enforcement service in North Dakota.
As a non-profit organization, NDFOP and its subordinate lodges are dependent upon the financial support of both private citizens and business. Financing is obtained through sponsorships, and private donations to our organization. For this we are truly grateful for the support.
