Law Enforcement Memorial

Fallen But Never Forgotten

To date, Delaware Law Enforcement has lost 48 officers due to line of duty deaths. Each May, we gather in Dover, where their names have been etched upon the Delaware Law Enforcement Memorial next to this quote. Not in remembrance, because we will never forget, but in honor of the ultimate sacrifice they made for our state and our community.

Labor

The FOP Labor Services Division was founded in an effort to provide our officers with a comprehensive and skilled team to help officers and their lodges navigate the collective bargaining process. Whether your department requires contract information, experienced legal experts, training seminars or personalized labor research, the Labor Services Division stands ready to provide you with the people and resources you need.

Legal Defense

The FOP Legal Defense Plan is a program created under the National Fraternal Order of Police to ensure that all officers are given the chance to have comprehensive legal services provided to them at affordable rates. The plan has multiple options for criminal and civil litigators throughout the nation! 

Officer Wellness

Like our National Lodge, the Delaware Fraternal Order of Police has made officer wellness a top priority. Our 2nd Vice President Harold Bozeman serves on the leadership team for Trauma Survivors Foundation, and is a nationally accredited trainer in the areas of CISM, CIT, and is considered an expert in his field. He has a Delaware CISM team ready to respond wherever and whenever needed. 2nd VP Bozeman is also preparing training for other lodges and departments to help expand this team throughout our state. We are happy to have these resources as well as the strong support and resources of our National Lodge which you can read more about here.
