PPOA representatives joined thousands of fellow Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) delegates at the 66th Biennial National Conference and Expo in Las Vegas last month. This event is hosted every two years in order for FOP leaders to set the goals and agenda for the organization. The conference also included seminars, a review of the FOP constitution and bylaws, the election of Executive Board members, and exhibitors from all over the country showcasing their law enforcement-related products and services.
PPOA members, active and retired, have long benefited from our affiliation with the FOP, the world’s largest organization of law enforcement officers, with more than 364,000 members in more than 2,100 lodges nationwide. All active PPOA members are part of California FOP Lodge #1.
Important note regarding FOP membership for retired PPOA members: When a sworn PPOA member retires and wishes to reactivate their FOP member benefits, the following step must be taken: To reactivate your membership as a retired peace officer, you will need to pay FOP annual dues of $40 for 2023. To do so, please send an email to the FOP Lodge #1 secretary at email@example.com. Be sure to include your full name and advise that you are a retired PPOA member requesting membership with FOP.
