Message from the President by Randy Hagler
Greetings and welcome to the official web site of the North Carolina Fraternal Order of Police. NCFOP is the largest and oldest law enforcement officers’ organization in the State, serving law enforcement officers in local, state, and federal agencies throughout North Carolina.
NCFOP is dedicated to protecting the men and women across the State and keeping our citizens and communities safe. Offering the very best legal defense to our members, when needed for criminal, civil, or administrative purposes, is only one of the many reasons to join. NCFOP also enjoys a strong profile in both Raleigh and Washington to ensure we are actively involved with State and Federal legislative issues before they become law. We are also proud to host many FOP, Cops, and Kids events around the State which helps keep our officers connected with the communities they serve. There are many other reasons to join the FOP, just give us a call so we can talk about.
In order to be sure we understand what our members need, the State Lodge holds two meetings a year to bring our Board of Directors together for reports and conversation. Attending these board meetings are representatives from all of our local lodges. These meetings give us the opportunity to hear from the local lodges and membership and at the same time allows the State Lodge to keep the membership informed about issues and activities of importance which are taking place around our State and across the country.
NCFOP elects a member to serve on the National Fraternal Order of Police Board of Directors, as well, which keeps our State connected to the Grand Lodge and State and Local lodges across the country and the more than 325,000 FOP members nationwide. NCFOP members serve in many areas for the National FOP including the Constitution and By-Laws Committee, Disaster Assistance Committee, Legislative Committee, and the FOP Foundation, just to name a few.
Please let us know what you think about our web site. Also, let us know if we can assist you, your lodge, your members, or your community. Please feel free to contact me or any of our Board of Directors.
Randy Hagler, State President
