Welcome to Battlefield Lodge #43 of the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP).  The FOP 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.
