Federal Law Enforcement Lodge 138 & 138A
Fort Lauderdale, Florida


FOP Federal Lodge 138 - Celebrates our 31st year as a member of the Fraternal Order of Police

The “Broward County – Federal Law Enforcement – Lodge # 138”, was created during the month of April 1993, by thirty dedicated U.S. Customs Officers, assigned to the US Customs Service duty station in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Our members wanted to find a federal law enforcement labor organization that would support and defend our members on a national level.

We discovered such an organization the “Fraternal Order of Police” and the brotherhood of law enforcement officers throughout the United States. The FOP consists of members from all levels of the government; federal, state, municipal and county. The “Fraternal Order of Police” is the largest law enforcement labor organization in the United States protecting the rights and concerns of over 300,000 officers and 2100 local lodges.

The President’s Mission Statement

The mission of the FOP is to protect and serve the citizens of this nation and to work to foster growth and understanding between law enforcement and the community.
