About Us

The Albuquerque Lodge No. 01, of the Fraternal Order of Police, was established in 1948 as the first lodge in the state of New Mexico. It is an organization of law enforcement officers, corrections officers, federal agents and probation and parole officers of the United States and is affiliated with the State Lodge and National Lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police. We strive to create better working conditions for members of the law enforcement profession by solidifying their strength and promoting their mutual welfare in the City of Albuquerque, the State of New Mexico and the Nation.

“To support and defend the Constitution of the United States; to inculcate loyalty and allegiance to the USA; 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 the 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 a 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.”

Any regularly appointed or elected and full-time law enforcement officer of the United States, any political subdivision thereof, or any agency may be eligible for membership in the Fraternal Order of Police, subject to the provisions of the FOP Constitution. No person shall be denied membership on account of race, national origin, religion, color, sex, or age.

There are three (3) types of membership: Active, Honorary, and Associate.

  • Active Membership includes regularly appointed or elected full-time, or retired law enforcement officers. Only Active Members may vote on Lodge business.
  • Honorary Membership applies to individuals recognized by the Lodge, State Lodge, or Grand Lodge for exceptional service or contribution.
  • Associate Membership includes individuals recommended by an active member, and who support the Object and Purpose of the Fraternal Order of Police. Associate members have no vote and receive no benefits of the Lodge.

Dues: Active Member dues are $10.00 per month ($120 per year). Those Active Members over the age of 65 shall pay dues of $5.00 per month ($60 per year).

Persons wishing to join Lodge #1 must be recommended by a current member, fill out an application form, and pay dues in advance.
