About the FOP

The Fraternal Order of Police was founded on May 14, 1915 thanks to the courage and wisdom of two Pittsburgh police officers, Martin Toole and Delbert Nagle.

Meet the Executive Board

The core leadership of FOP Lodge 48 is in the hands of the capable Executive Board, whose direction is carried out by the President of Lodge 48.

The FOP Cops and Kids program is designed to build relationships between Lodge 48 and the Madison County community. Officers taking underprivileged kids shopping for Christmas presents or school supplies shows those children that the police in their area are friends and are always there to help. Giving a child a present, when they wouldn't have received one, or the supplies they need to excel in school, can make a lasting impression.

FOP Associates are civilian affiliates of the Fraternal Order of Police.  Our Members are friends and families of law enforcement officers, responsible and respected business persons, professional men and women, and citizens from all walks of life.  People willing to devote a portion of their time and efforts toward assisting the various law enforcement agencies in Madison County Indiana.

With the sudden and tragic passing of our brother Larry Crenshaw, I ask everyone to a moment to say a prayer for his family and friends. He was a genuine family man. I was personally blessed to have him as a friend.

https://www.facebook.com/529014683923497/posts/1735623569929263/?extid=VAHoaflfDcgEyvRr&d=nFOP #48 will be having another rally this Sunday September 27th at 1:00 pm. The rally will start again at Anderson City Hall and then walk to Anderson Police Department on Main St. We want to show support to officers that have continued to work through this pandemic and for the officers that are fighting for their careers. We want fair and impartial treatment for all our members county wide.

PLEASE wear your Yellow FOP shirts and show up. I hope to see MCSD and other agencies standing together with APD as well. Every officer is feeling the constant attack which is making our profession more challenging everyday. We need the support from our communities and show them that we care and want to protect and serve them. Please invite neighbors, friends, family members, anyone that wants to support us.
