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.

Donation & Support

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.
