The Ohio Valley FOPA Lodge #85 is an organization formed for the purpose of increasing our understanding of the rights, duties and problems of law enforcement officers; of fostering respect for them; and of bettering conditions under which they serve society. We accomplish this through public relations, as well as legislative and educational efforts. It is our aim and objective to support law enforcement throughout our communities, in every way possible. We believe that Law is the safeguard to freedom, and it is our duty to defend it.
The Ohio Valley FOPA Lodge #85 works to assist our parent Lodge. We provide law enforcement agencies with dedicated public support.
Many Associate Lodges present scholarships to dependents of law enforcement officers and Associate members.
Associate Lodges donate funds to officers in need or distress, provide funds for various law enforcement needs and youth programs, and present awards to recognize outstanding and dedicated law enforcement officers and Associate members.
The Ohio Valley FOPA Lodge #85 holds joint social functions enjoyed by members, family, and friends.
