Pennsylvania is the birthplace of the Fraternal Order of Police, which was formed in Pittsburgh in 1915. The Pennsylvania State Lodge was established on July 24, 1934, and currently represents nearly 40,000 law enforcement members from Pennsylvania. The State Lodge works tirelessly on behalf of its membership providing member assistance, educational programs, public service, and by advocating on their behalf for legislation to enhance their safety and security as well as that of the public. The State Lodge has 107 subordinate lodges across the Commonwealth, and represents law enforcement officers from many different types of police agencies.

Are the police racist? Do they disproportionately shoot African-Americans? Are incidents in places like Ferguson and Baltimore evidence of systemic discrimination? Heather Mac Donald, a scholar at the Manhattan Institute, explains. Click here to watch the You Tube video.
STATE FOP ISSUES STATEMENT REGARDING DEMOCRATIC PARTY’S UPCOMING CONVENTION
Fraternal Order of Police, State Lodge President Les Neri today issued the following statement regarding the Democratic Party’s Upcoming Convention:
“We are aware of the controversy caused by the Democratic Party’s insensitive choice of speakers at their upcoming convention. The 40,000 members of the Pennsylvania FOP State Lodge stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Philadelphia FOP Lodge 5 and share their shock and disgust.
This unnecessary and pandering move by the Democratic National Party is exactly what the country does not need. People are already questioning the role of law enforcement without being tossed into the political cross hairs in the hopes of simply winning an election.
Now more than ever, we need to rally around our brave men and women in uniform instead of look for ways to tear them apart.”
