Alabama State FOP

Testimonials

In September 2015 my granddaughter Ella was born with a hole in her lungs and was sent to Baptist South in Montgomery. As I was walking down the hall to see her, the president of the state FOP president, Westley Knapp called me about something else and could hear that something was wrong in my voice. I told him what was going on and ask if he could call me back. With in about 15 minutes I had 3 calls from FOP members offering places to stay and meals. One of those members was the current State President, Everette Johnson.

Skip forward to September 2019 and my grandson Noah was born in Birmingham, 3 months premature with bad intestine problems that required surgery. He currently has spent 3 months in Birmingham. During this time my son took FMLA for three weeks and was told that he would get paid 60% of his pay. When he returned to work, they told him that they were not going to pay him. My wife and I were preparing to take out a loan to pay their bills when President Johnson called and asked for my sons address so they could send them a check. I asked him what he was talking about and he stated that the e-board voted to give them $3,000. This is what the FOP is for me, it’s the brother hood that can not be broken and is always there to help.

During my officer involved shooting I found comfort in having my FOP attorney there on the scene with me. I was protected and only had to give one statement which he forwarded to internal affairs, ABI, and the DA 3 days later in the safety of his office. It was comforting to have someone protecting me and looking out for my best interests. I could not have paid for this out of my own pocket. Thank you FOP!

Tuskegee Police Department extends the highest amount of gratitude to you and the Fraternal Order Police for your generous Grant Award. We like many other small departments sometimes experience physical limitations in which have to prioritize our equipment purchases on a need vs cost basis. Thanks to the FOP we did not have to make the decision to prioritize any other critical need above our officers’ safety. The FOP has proven to be one of the best resources for our agency, whether it has been equipment, policy, or training. We at Tuskegee Police Department appreciate and support all that you do! Keep up the great work!

The Alabama fraternal of police has been a brotherhood and a family throughout my life and career.  My dad was a member and brought me in as a child and I’ve been pretty much to every meeting for 30 plus years. I feel the Fop saved my career when it changed the RIGHT TO FIRE by the  Sheriff of Madison County in the late 90s. I can never fully describe all the organization has done for me personally and professionally.
