Thanks for checking our the new and improved FOP Lodge #99 website. This website is dedicated first and foremost to the members and families of Fraternal Order Of Police, Charles D. Hammond Lodge #99 in Muskegon Michigan. Our lodge is self funded. We pay per capita monies to be part of the State Of Michigan FOP and the Grand Lodge National FOP organizations. The lodge is located on Twin Lake and serves at a membership meeting and activity hall. The lodge is also seasonally available for some rentals. Our local lodge consists of active members, retired members and associate members. Lodge functions are overseen by an executive board and board of trustees. We conduct monthly membership meetings on the third Thursday of each month. Our goal is to provide a friendly atmosphere for the men and women of law enforcement to gather, along with the community supporters of law enforcement. These meetings allow us to network outside of the job and to work toward a strong positive image while also striving toward helping others in our communities through various fundraisers and donations.
We, the law enforcement officers of the United States and of the several states and political subdivisions thereof, as representatives and delegates of state and subordinate lodges, do hereby associate the several lodges we represent and the members thereof for the following purposes:
To support and defend the Constitution of the United States; to inculcate loyalty and allegiance to the United States of America; to promote and foster the enforcement of law and order; to improve the individual and collective proficiency of our members in the performance of their duties; to encourage fraternal, educational, charitable and social activities among law enforcement officers; to advocate and strive for uniform application of the civil service merit system for appointment and promotion; to support the improvement of the standard of living and working conditions of the law enforcement profession through every legal and ethical means available; to create and maintain tradition of esprit de corps insuring fidelity to duty under all conditions and circumstances; to cultivate a spirit of fraternalism and mutual helpfulness among our members and the people we serve; to increase the efficiency of the law enforcement profession and thus more firmly to establish the confidence of the public in the service dedicated to the protection of life and property.
