For more than 60 years Maricopa Lodge Five has represented the interests of Arizona Law Enforcement Officers. Our representatives are actively involved in the legislative process and actively work to advance the interests of professional Law Enforcement officers. Arizona’s Fraternal Order of Police is dedicated to the advancement and protection of law enforcement officers and the promotion of officer benefits.
All law enforcement officers within the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, and law enforcement officers of other local law enforcement agencies within Maricopa County, are welcome to join our F.O.P. lodge. Additionally, officers who have retired any law enforcement agency who now live in Maricopa County are eligible for membership. Our lodge provides members with an option of joining the F.O.P. Arizona Labor Council, which is available to all members regardless of rank. Members pay monthly dues that go toward our yearly tax, insurance, charity donations and the other normal expenses our lodge incurs.
The F.O.P. ALC is a unique statewide law enforcement labor union created by the Arizona State Lodge Fraternal Order of Police, Inc., for the express purpose of addressing law enforcement-related labor issues, in all respects. ALC membership is open to all members of the Fraternal Order of Police and its subordinate lodges who are employed at a law enforcement agency, including sworn as well as non-sworn personnel.
One of the foremost benefits of ALC membership is direct access to highly competent and qualified attorneys with specific expertise in the area which affects our members the most, their employment. From a simple question relative to rights to grieve a departmental policy to the loss of a job, the ALC provides its members with unparalleled legal representation. Best of all, our members decide when they need a lawyer. Members simply dial a toll-free number listed on their membership cards. We encourage all members take full advantage of all membership benefits.
The Fraternal Order of Police is the world’s largest organization of sworn law enforcement officers. 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 officers better than another officer, and no one knows law enforcement officers better than the F.O.P.
Not only do we work tirelessly to enhance your benefits, we also provide members the best legal defense plan in Arizona. The Fraternal Order of Police Arizona Labor Council legal plan is, by far, the best plan of its type available to law enforcement professionals.
Our State and National F.O.P. leadership employs a full time cadre of professional lobbyists in Arizona and Washington, D.C. The Arizona F.O.P. and the National F.O.P. legislative team has been the driving force behind local and national law enforcement legislation.
