Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What are we all about?
The Kettle Moraine Lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police is based in West Bend, WI and was chartered on October 13th, 2004. The lodge is comprised of both active and retired law enforcement officers from Washington County and the surrounding areas.
The Lodge is a membership-driven, non-profit organization dedicated to providing opportunities for local law enforcement officers to exchange information and give back to the communities we serve through charitable donations and community service. We are a 501(c)(3) charitable organization recognized by the IRS and conduct fundraisers throughout the year to support our charitable giving.
Our monthly meetings cover topics ranging from current trends in law enforcement, to effective community relations. Through these meetings, officers from multiple jurisdictions meet, exchange information and form new contacts while strengthening the law enforcement family.
In 2016, an Associate Lodge was formed, and is a great group of supporters of the KMFOP Lodge 10. Check it out to see if it might be right for you!
