Stop and Frisk is Constitutional - Primer for Media & Certain Politicians
09/28/16 - Colorado State Lodge F.O.P.
Let's put one thing to bed. It would be wise for the media and some politicians to understand the governing constitutional decision and standard for "Stop and Frisk" (Terry stop). Stop and frisk (Terry stop) is based on reasonable suspicion and is completely constitutional under the landmark 8 to 1 SCOTUS decision Terry v. Ohio, 392 U.S. 1 (1968).

Labor Day
09/06/16 - Fraternal Order of Police of Ohio, Inc.
Labor Day  Almost every full time sworn law enforcement officer in Ohio is a member of a union.  However, many of our members have never worked in law enforcement before collective bargaining existed in Ohio.  This includes myself. We do not really talk about the history of the FOP as much as we should, we should talk more about those who came before us.

There May Finally Be Light at the End of This Tunnel - Commerce City PD
08/18/16 - Colorado State Lodge F.O.P.
The Colorado FOP joins with our Commerce City FOP Lodge 19 in welcoming DOJ assistance with their department. We have been demanding for almost 3 years a top to bottom independent review of the police department, which has suffered under the most inept Chief (Troy Smith) that we have ever had the displeasure to deal with.
There Is No Stronger Bond. There Is No Greater Reason.
08/16/16 - Colorado State Lodge F.O.P.
These are difficult times to be a peace officer. Our profession is under attack from ill-informed politicians, an anti-police biased media, and activists promoting a false narrative in regards to our interactions with the public. The Fraternal Order of Police is this Nation's and Colorado's largest, most influential, and most unified voice of our profession.
What really lies beneath that rhetoric?
08/16/16 - Colorado State Lodge F.O.P.
A picture (graph) is worth a thousand words. Although these stats are from 2013 the simple fact of the matter is the percentages have remained same. It is a clear indication that the national media, certain vote pandering politicians, and delusional activist groups, such as black lives matter, exist to promote an agenda far different than what their words or actions hope to portray.
