Reinstatement of Lapsed Membership:  If your membership with FOP Lodge #113 has lapsed, there is a $100 reinstatement fee to reactivate your membership.

If you did not register in 2021, then you will need to complete the registration process, submit updated documents as applicable, and a background check if one has not been completed in the past 24 months.

Your annual fee payment for 2023 will be due upon finalizing your reinstatement and is not prorated.  Upon reinstatement, your future annual fee due date will revert to your due date based on your initial membership.  All fees paid are non-refundable.


As the Fraternal Order of Police, our priority processing of applications for membership is for Active / Retired Law Enforcement and Corrections Officers.  We will process civilian applications for an Associate Membership on a limited and controlled basis.  The number of associate membership applications being processed is contingent upon the number of applications received from Law Enforcement and Corrections Officers. 

Types of Membership

We offer three types of memberships which include:

  • Member:  Open to active or retired law enforcement or corrections officers.  If you are not currently active or retired LEO/CORR, you must provide verification of a minimum of ten years of active LEO/CORR service to be approved for this membership.  Active LEO/ CORR are exempt from the background check but, may be subject to complete a background check at any time during membership with Lodge #113, at the expense of the member.  Members have voting rights on lodge business.

*** If you are or have been a member of another FOP Lodge, you will need to verify you have been removed from their roster before you can join Lodge #113.  You will need to include a letter from your lodge secretary with your application as well as having that letter sent from your lodge secretary to FOP #113 Secretary at secretary@sjcfop113.org.

  • Range Membership: Available by prior approval only to active or retired law enforcement/corrections officers who must maintain membership with another FOP lodge for collective bargaining or retirement benefits as confirmed by the lodge. 
  • Associate Membership:  Open to military members and civilians.  Applicants are subject to a background check at their expense.  Associate Members have access to the range and lodge; they do not have voting rights on lodge business.

Any person who brings a guest onto FOP #113 Gun Range is subject to loss of range access and/or a fine being assessed. 

As the FOP, we are a benevolent organization with a gun range as a perk of the membership.  Use of or access to the FOP #113 Gun Range is a privilege of your membership and is not a guaranteed right.  The Board of Directors may rescind, restrict, suspend, or cancel your access to the range at any time which will not affect FOP membership.  Refunds of membership fees will not be given for loss of range privileges.  The Board of Directors may also modify or update the range rules.

Upon submitting a Petition for Membership with Lodge #113, the applicant must agree to a thorough background check.  Additionally, background checks will be conducted during the course of membership as set by the Board of Directors.  The applicant/member is responsible for any fee related to the background check.
