Our local members are the strength of our organization and the FOP is the voice of those who dedicate their lives to protecting and serving our communities. We value the ideas, participation, and individual contributions that our members make to our lodge, our Police Agency, our City, and our State. FOP Lodge 35 participates in community fundraising activities and continuously strives to support activities that benefit our community. We encourage our members to connect with our community and to establish trust and legitimacy to bridge the gap between law enforcement officers and the people whom we serve.
All FOP lodges in each state are united by their State FOP Lodge. The parent lodge of the entire organization is known as the Grand Lodge or the National Fraternal Order of Police. Each local, state, and the national lodge has elected board members that represent the body. The FOP engages in legislative activities that lobbies Congress on the issues most important to law enforcement officers; i.e. the “Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act”, HR1073 and the “Social Security Fairness Act”, HR 980. In Florida, the FOP has grown to over 125 local lodges with a statewide membership of over 20,000. The Florida State Lodge is then broken down into 7 Districts. Boca Raton FOP Lodge 35 is affiliated with FOP District 4.
