DC FOP Lodge #1 is working alongside the National F.O.P. to provide our members with the F.O.P. Legal Defense Plan, which is owned and operated by the National F.O.P. It is a plan designed to protect our members from any criminal, administrative and civil matters arising from their performance of duties. This will also cover our members while working overtime and off duty employment. Although the individual cost for this plan is usually $286.00 a year for full coverage, we are able to offer it to you through the lodge at the group rate for $264.00 with a savings of $22.00 per year.

This in no way replaces whatever bargaining agreement you have. This is an additional means of protection for all of our lodge members. You may need the following information to complete the application (if you need to be reminded of your member number, please contact the lodge.)
