Message from the President

Dear Visitor,

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our web site. If you’re a repeat reader, thank you for coming back. And, if you’re a new visitor, we hope you find our posts informative and educational about the lives and issues facing law enforcement officers who take risks on a daily basis. On this site, we will be bringing to our members the most up to date information on legislation, labor relations, education, equipment, and law enforcement services.

The Fraternal Order of Police is the World's largest organization of sworn law enforcement officers with over 328,000 members. In New Jersey, the Fraternal Order of Police represents over 17,000 law enforcement officers. No one knows the difficulties and dangers that face law enforcement officers better than another officer and no one knows law enforcement better than the FOP. We have learned from the past and will respond to the challenges of today with imagination, courage and determination. We are faced with exciting opportunities and I can tell you that we are focused and confident in getting the job done. Risk is an inherent part of police work and the New Jersey State Lodge is committed to protecting those who protect others.

I have served more than 30 years as a police officer retiring as a Newark detective and am honored to be the elected President of the State FOP since 2002. Just this summer, I was elected unopposed to a second term as Vice President to the National FOP Executive Board.

Our goal on both the National and State levels is create a tradition of esprit de corps insuring fidelity to duty under all conditions, to cultivate a spirit of fraternalism and mutual helpfulness among our members and the people we serve.

Edward R. Brannigan,
