Democracy is the cornerstone on which the FOP is built and we defend it vigorously.
The Fort Lauderdale Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #31 is the state certified Collective Bargaining Unit for Fort Lauderdale police officers, sergeants and captains. The local lodge is the backbone of the FOP and should be in the forefront of any fight to protect and advance their members and the police profession. FOP Lodge 31 provides its members with legal defense arising out of their actions as police officers, union representation in the grievance procedure and provides health and life insurance coverage. FOP Lodge 31 donates to many local charities and youth athletic programs in the greater Fort Lauderdale area.
