There isn’t a more noble profession than to keep the peace and enforce law and order in America. Even though Americans often take it for granted, by supporting and defending the Constitution of the United States, residents reap the benefits of a safe working and living environment every day.

As much as you dedicate your life’s work to protecting and serving our communities, the Fraternal Order of Police is dedicated to protecting and serving you. As America’s largest law enforcement labor force, the FOP of New Jersey provides an impressive collection of services, educational opportunities, and advantages unique among labor union organizations in America.
