Illinois Fraternal Order Of Police Events

The Fraternal Order of Police is the world’s largest organization of sworn law enforcement officers. Additionally, there are more than 354,000 members in more than 2,100 lodges. We aim to improve the working conditions of law enforcement officers and the safety of those we serve through education, legislation, information, community involvement, and employee representation. No one knows the dangers and the difficulties faced by today’s police officers better than another officer. However, no one knows police officers better than the FOP.

The Fraternal Order of Police (FOP), founded over 100 years ago in 1915. It is the largest organization of sworn law enforcement officers in the United States. With a proud tradition of officers representing officers, the FOP is the most respected and most recognized police organization in the country. The Illinois FOP is also the second-largest State Lodge. We proudly represent over 33,000 active duty and retired police officers – more than 10 percent of all FOP members nationwide.

The Illinois Fraternal Order of Police holds events monthly and annually. Join us for Board of Trustee Meetings, Board Meetings and Community Events.

2023 Day on the Hill

February 6 - February 8

THE FOP NEEDS YOU IN WASHINGTON! The new Congress will be sworn in and convene in January and we are going to need to up our engagement and work hard to get our anti-crime and officer safety agenda through the 118th Congress. There will be a lot of new faces and major changes in Congressional leadership, particularly in the House which will be controlled by Republicans.

The FOP’s annual Day on the Hill is a unique opportunity to have face-to-face interactions with the Members of Congress that represent YOU in the nation’s capital. We need to make sure that our priorities—the “Social Security Fairness Act,” the “Protect and Serve Act,” and support for local and State law enforcement fighting the national epidemic of violent crime—become their priorities as well. Our future success are based on our ability to motivate and mobilize our grassroots to make sure our message gets through. Participation in this event is just a part—but an important part—of the FOP’s advocacy strategy. We need our members to build, strengthen, and sustain their relationships with their Senators and Representatives. Members of Congress need to know that FOP are active voters who will hold them accountable for their actions.

If you have any questions, please contact the National FOP’s Government and Media Affairs Center at (202) 547-8189.

Every day, men and women across this state, and country, put on a uniform. They put on a utility belt. And they put on a bulletproof vest. In the current climate of our nation, that is the most essential thing that that man or woman owns. They step out the door and they just don’t know if they will be returning to it at the end of their shift.
