Welcome to Shelby County Metro F.O.P. Lodge #35
Proudly Serving Law Enforcement in West Tennessee for Over 48 Years!
The Shelby County Metro Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #35 (formerly known as the Memphis State Troopers Lodge #35) was formed in 1968 to serve law enforcement personnel employed by various agencies in the Memphis & Shelby County, Tennessee area. Lodge 35 serves a variety of Federal, State and local law enforcement agencies and offers each of our 1200+ members legal defense coverage among other important benefits. The National Fraternal Order of Police started in 1915, and represents over 330,000 members in 2200 lodges Worldwide. We are the voice of those who dedicate their lives to protecting and serving our communities. We are committed to improving the working conditions of law enforcement officers and the safety of those we serve through education, legislation, information, community involvement, and employee representation. No one knows the dangers and the difficulties faced by today's police officers better than another officer, and no one knows police officers better than the F.O.P.. Please email us at FOPLodge35@yahoo.com if you need to renew, want to join or have any other questions.
We will be transitioning to our new domain name on January 1, 2018. Please make a note of the new address: www.TNFOP35.com
