Presidents Message

First and foremost I'd like to start off by thanking the members of the New York State Fraternal Order of Police for your unwavering support and commitment towards the continuing growth and progress of the NYS FOP. I would also like to welcome the members of our new executive board and congratulate them for their outstanding dedication towards contributing to this great organization.

As the newly elected President of the NYS FOP, it is an honor and a privilege to stand along side my fellow brothers and sisters as we enter the New year with much to look forward to. In light of recent events, it is crucial now more then ever that we support one another to resolve the tension that's been threatening the lives and reputation of the law enforcement community. We must stand unified, with unweaving commitment to do our best in preventing further catastrophes. I welcome you the opportunity to join us in further strengthening and expanding our means of communication as we move forward.
On a brighter note, it brings us great pleasure to inform you that we have launched a new website. While some sections are still under construction, you can view the progress at

I strongly encourage members to take the opportunity to sign up for our news letter in order to remain up to date with all the new and upcoming events we have underway. With that being said, I am honored to continue working with the men and women that serve our beautiful state and look forward to the promising future of our organization.
