The Combined Law Enforcement Associations of Texas or CLEAT was born during the mid-1970’s by innovative police officers seeking to enhance the law enforcement profession.

Next year will mark the 100th birthday of this nation's oldest representative police organization, the Fraternal Order of Police. In 1915, the life of a policeman was bleak. In many communities they were forced to work 12 or more hours a day, 365 days a year with little if any time off, for very little pay and no voice in their profession.  Police officers didn't like it, but there was little they could do to change their working conditions.

Finding Help Should Be Easy
07/14/14 - Colorado State Lodge F.O.P.
Should be easy ....BUT ITS NOT. Many departments (not all) here in Colorado and across this country will fire an officer before dealing with these issues in a responsible and proper manner. We are working hard to change that but it will take time. It should not be that way.....but for many it is. The legislative PTSD Task Force is hopefully the start for long overdue change here in Colorado.
