What is the Fraternal Order of Police Associates (FOPA)?

The FOPA is a civilian affiliate of the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP). Our members are friends and families of Law Enforcement Officers, responsible and respected business persons, professional men and women and citizens from all walks of life. People willing to devote a portion of their time and efforts toward assisting the various law enforcement agencies within our communities, States and Nation.

The FOPA is a non-partisan organization, without regard to race, creed, color or religious beliefs.

The FOPA’s interests revolve around Law Enforcement and the men and women that have dedicated their lives to the protection of ours. The FOPA actively supports Legislation, Charitable causes and all Law Enforcement efforts on a local, state and National level.

Goals of the FOPA

The FOPA is an organization formed for the purpose of increasing our understanding of the rights, duties and problems facing Law Enforcement Officers; of fostering respect for them, and improving the conditions under which they serve society. We accomplish this effort through public relations as well as legislative and educational efforts. It is our aim and objective to support Law Enforcement throughout our country in every way possible. We believe that Law is the safeguard to freedom and it is our duty to defend it.
