Email introduction from President Fisher.
In an effort to make the Weber Fraternal of Police, a better-understood and known organization, I am reaching out to all law enforcement who may not know what our organization does. The Weber FOP is focused on our community of agencies and the citizens we serve. We represent all of the Law Enforcement and Correction Agencies in Weber and Morgan Counties and are an open lodge to any Officer in the State of Utah.
Being a part of a national organization, we have a lot of resources available to take advantage of. Perhaps the most important thing we offer our members is the legal service and protection. On our State Legal plan is even better than the national plan. Where you are covered under the extra duty (extra cost for the national plan) on the state plan with some additional benefits. This is important if you were to be involved in the use of force, specifically shooting your weapon and the possible legal ramifications. This legal protection also provides representation during administrative investigations. In addition, there is an option to have time off without pay, reimbursed through our legal plan.
You deserve the same legal protections as the citizens are afforded.
Another significant benefit is that they are your advocates and lobbyist in the very political world. The national level is working in Washington D.C. to protect, serve, and represent you to the nation. On the state level, they represent you to the State legislators and are working on fixing the poorly implemented Tier 2 retirement, and address other local state issues.
You can find benefits in travel and item purchases. We have the National FOP journal providing information to our members. We have national and local events, including participating in Police Week, hosted in our nation’s capital.
Education of members to better their career. They provide assistance in obtaining a college degree at no cost for you and your family. There are limitations, but what a great resource to get your education going. They also provide continuing education courses.
Our local lodge is growing and improving daily since the new board took over. We want to serve you, and we’re trying. There are more great things coming. Please feel to reach out with any questions you may have, thank you.
