The Fraternal Order of Police is the world's largest organization of sworn law enforcement officers, with more than 325,000 members in more than 2,100 lodges. We are the voice of those who dedicate their lives to protecting and serving our communities. We are committed to improving 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, and no one knows police officers better than the FOP.
Our main objective is to serve the needs of law enforcement officers in our area and for the good of the nation. The Maryland State Troopers FOP Lodge #69 was formed in March 1970 to fulfill the need for unity within the State of Maryland associated with the Maryland State Police Troopers. Today we serve not only our officers, but our communities as well through local fundraisers and benefits.
Our lodge is part of the National FOP organization, consisting of 2,100 lodges. United we support the rights of over 325,000 sworn officers of the law. We encourage you to browse our website to learn more about our organization and the causes we support.
