The FOP - Where It All Began

Next year will mark the 100th birthday of this nation's oldest representative police organization, the Fraternal Order of Police. In 1915, the life of a policeman was bleak. In many communities they were forced to work 12 or more hours a day, 365 days a year with little if any time off, for very little pay and no voice in their profession.  Police officers didn't like it, but there was little they could do to change their working conditions.

We are working hard to change that but it will take time. It should not be that way.....but for many it is. The legislative PTSD Task Force is hopefully the start for long overdue change here in Colorado.

Killing a Cop Doesn’t Make You A Revolutionary.

My friend was murdered today.  His name was Alyn Beck. He was a cop. And today he became the victim of a murderous rampage posed as the start of some kind of revolution. Two wackos walked into a fast food restaurant, ambushed my friend Alyn and his partner, Igor Soldo, shooting them point blank as they ate their lunch.

Across the country special interest groups are using Public Employees as scapegoats for the financial problems caused by politicians. These politicians are endangering the public in order to further their own agenda to silence public employee unions and gut public services. The safety of every citizen of the United States is threatened as Public Safety jobs are eliminated and the services and protections that these departments offer the public are scaled back to the bare bones. We cannot continue to allow the politicians that we entrust to run our government destroy the safety of our communities.

In order to arm you with the facts of what is happening to our country, The National Fraternal Order of Police has created a website as a place to share news of what these groups are doing to harm our public employees and the safety of our communities. Click on the poster above to see what is happening in your state and what you can do to help in this fight to Save Public Safety.
