Fraternal Order of Police Chapters

The Fraternal Order of Police is the world’s largest organization of sworn law enforcement officers, with more than 330,000 members in more than 2,200 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.

South Carolina’s Fraternal Order of the Police is dedicated to the advancement and protection of law enforcement officers, the promotion of officer benefits, and overall law and order. We employ a lobbyist in Washington, D.C. who works in support of national legislation, as well as lobbyists here in SC who work on state legislative issues.

The FOP makes available to each member fraternal support, warm camaraderie, special rate accidental insurance polices, access to the National Police Credit Union, and a legal defense plan fund.
