Rumors are often incorrect and/or misleading. Rumors are spread because of gaps in information. Often they have no resemblance to the actual truth about an issue. Rumors should be checked with Representatives at Lodge #5. If we don't know we will find out and we will get back to you.
Each full-time Representative can handle general Lodge questions and information. However, each one also handles specific areas of Lodge business.
FOP meetings are held on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of every month during the year (totaling 24 meetings) adhering to the following schedule.
F.O.P. General Membership Meetings are held on the 2nd Tuesday of every month throughout the year. There are no F.O.P. meetings on the 1st., 3rd., or 5th.Tuesdays, if applicable.
The Board of Directors meeting is held on the 4th. Tuesday of every month throughout the year. All meeting times are 7:00PM.
On the 1st. Tuesday of every month an FOP Social Night is held in the Lounge starting at 7PM. This Social Night is in place of the deleted 1st. Tuesday General Membership Meeting and is a great way for members to continue the fraternalism and friendship that after meeting activities bring about.
DIRECTORS MUST ATTEND F.O.P. MEETINGS. Directors will keep up to date with their District/Unit Officers on various matters of concern and interest. You are to contact an F.O.P. representative: to clarify any rumors, make inquiries on Contract violations, about other questions, and situations that occur with an Officer or within the District/Unit, et cetera.

Members may, during the business hours of Police Personnel, look through their personnel file. This is a good practice to determine that items that belong in the file are there and also if things that should have been removed or expunged were actually removed. Personnel's phone number is 215-686-3370 to ascertain if an appointment is needed.
Members must notify the F.O.P. when they move in order to avoid a lack of communication. Members should be encouraged to update their insurance beneficiary information with Lodge #5, and the City. This is a good practice, in general, with all your insurance policies!!

Personal Information Change
It is very important that you notify the F.O.P. when you have a change of address or name change due to marriage, divorce, etc. We, in turn, notify both the State & National Lodges on your behalf. Keep current with your beneficiaries and insurances; and remember to notify LEHB of any changes as well.
