Welcome visitors,

I want to take this opportunity to welcome you to our site. The Lawrence FOP 159 is dedicated  to protecting and improving the working conditions of the men and women who risk their lives to protect yours.

Many say that being a Police Officer is a choice and that we are paid a good salary.  We believe that being a Police Officer is a calling.  When there are reports of shots fired, a man with a knife, a horrific motor vehicle accident or any other inherently dangerous occurrences, the men and women who serve and protect, race to get there.  Many times the very act of speeding through traffic in all types of weather conditions puts these individuals in harm’s way.   We don't get paid for what we do; we get paid for what we may have to do. 

The Fraternal Order of Police is the World's largest organization of sworn law enforcement officers with over 320,000 members. In Indiana, the Fraternal Order of Police represents over 19,000 law enforcement officers. No one knows the difficulties and dangers that face law enforcement officers better than another officer and no one knows law enforcement better than the FOP.

Fraternally,                                                                                                                
Tom Ashcraft

President FOP 159

Help!!! Cops and Kids
Lawrence Fraternal Order of Police started their FOP Cops and Kids (formerly shop with a cop) over twenty five years ago. The program was established to build positive relationships between police officers and the children of the community. FOP Cops and Kids is a unique opportunity that allows Lawrence Police Officers to assist Lawrence children in a way far different than any other. Read More...

Stop and Frisk!!!
Let's put one thing to bed. It would be wise for the media and some politicians to understand the governing constitutional decision and standard for "Stop and Frisk" (Terry stop). Stop and frisk (Terry stop) is based on reasonable suspicion and is completely constitutional under the landmark 8 to 1 SCOTUS decision Terry v. Ohio, 392 U.S. 1 (1968). Read More...
