ASFOP Mission & History
The Alabama State Fraternal Order of Police was established to support and defend the Constitution of the United States, and the State of Alabama, to inculcate loyalty and allegiance to the United States of America; to promote and foster the impartial enforcement of law and order, to improve the individual proficiency of our members in the performance of their duties, to encourage social, charitable, and educational activities among all law enforcement officers, to advocate and strive for uniform application of the Civil Service and merit system for all law enforcement officers, to create a tradition of esprit de corps insuring fidelity to duty under all conditions and circumstances, to cultivate a spirit of fraternalism and mutual helpfulness among our membership and the people we serve; to increase the efficiency of the police profession and thus more firmly establish the confidence of the public in the service that is dedicated to the protection of life and property.
The Alabama State Fraternal Order of Police was established in 1947. We are a subsequent member of the National FOP which was established in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1915. The purpose of the FOP is to assist law enforcement officers in the betterment of working conditions. The Alabama State FOP consists of 64 subordinate lodges with approximately 8000 members.
