FOP Lodge 113

The FOP Star

The emblem adopted by the National Fraternal Order of Police is designed to remind the membership of the duties that are expected of them as a citizen, a police officer and a member of the lodge. The five-cornered star tends to remind us of the allegiance we owe to our Flag and is a symbol of the authority with which we are entrusted. It is an honor the people we serve bestow upon us. They place their confidence and trust in us; serve them proudly.

Benefits

FOP113_Logo.jpgThe Fraternal Order of Police is the largest organization of sworn law enforcement officers in the world, with more than 325,000 members in more than 2,100 lodges. The FOP is dedicated to its members, committed to improving the working conditions of law enforcement officers, and attentive to the safety of officers.

The FOP provides employee representation for many officers, along with legal representation.  For those who are not represented by the FOP through collective bargaining agreements, the FOP has made available a Legal Defense Plan, tailored to the needs of law enforcement officers.  The plan is available with coverage in several areas: Criminal, Civill and Administrative.   

Our lodge also officers a death benefit, FOP Services for those who have departed, and intangibles such as the fraternity that exists amongst our members.

endorses the City of Harrison Levy.

Voters in Harrison will get to decide on a public safety funding levy in November.  The members of FOP Lodge 113 support the Levy. The proposed five-year levy will help keep the city’s police, fire, and EMS services at their current levels. 

Since 2008, Harrison’s fire and police expenses have increased 8.5, according to a presentation by Harrison Chief of Police Charles Lindsey, Chairman of the Levy Committee. The City's revenues have decreased from the elimination of estate taxes and less in property tax distributions.  The State of Ohio has drastically cut Local Government funding.

In 2013, the City had to lay off one full-time police officer and four part-time officers. A departing officer was not replaced as well.  One full time firefighter was also laid off. Police officers and firefighters have experienced a four-year pay freeze.

The levy, if approved, would allow the City to rehire employees laid off from 2013, plus add one additional firefighter. The police department could reassign an office to the Drug Task Force, and add a bike and foot patrol.
