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. We welcome you to our website and hope you enjoy the information provided here.
National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day is Monday. On Smart Talk, we are joined by Les Neri, President of the Fraternal Order of Police Pennsylvania State Lodge and Joe Kovel, President of the Pennsylvania State Troopers Association to discuss policing in 2017.
Last week, rookie Pennsylvania State Police Trooper Landon Weaver was laid to rest -- a week after being shot and killed in Huntingdon County by a man who was accused of violating a Protection From Abuse Order. The 23-year-old Weaver was a newlywed who had just married his high school sweetheart a few months before.
Trooper Weaver was one of 140 law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty in 2016 and one of four in Pennsylvania.
Five police officers were killed in an ambush in Dallas and three more were shot to death in Baton Rouge, Louisiana last July.
Those shootings may have been triggered in retaliation for several unrelated police shootings of African-American men. In fact, one of the most contentious issues facing the country today is the relationship between police officers and their communities.
