Reinstatement of Lapsed Membership:  If you have previously been a member of FOP #113 and are seeking reinstatement of membership, complete a Contact Us form to receive information on what you need to do to re-activate your membership.  There is a $100 reinstatement fee due prior to processing with your annual fee membership due upon acceptance of reinstatement.

Your annual fee payment for 2022 will be due upon finalizing your reinstatement, regardless of when it is processed during 2022.  Upon reinstatement, your future annual fee due date will revert to your due date based on your initial membership.

IMPORTANT*****Effective January 1, 2023, any member, associate member, or range member who has lapsed in membership will have annual fees assessed to their account at a rate as determined by the Board of Directors which is currently $200 per year.  The accrual balance must be brought current before reinstatement is permitted.  

Example: John Smith lapses in membership June 2018.  It is January 2023 and Mr. Smith would like to reinstate his membership with FOP #113.  He did not pay his annual fee in 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, and now it is 2023.  Mr. Smith will owe $1000 in arrearages (5 years x $200) plus $200 for 2023 annual fees.  

 


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 will be 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. 
  • 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.
