Fraternal Order of Police

The Wadsworth Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) is the only fraternal organization for active and retired Wadsworth police officers. We have been in existence since 1947, making us one of the oldest existing FOP lodges in Ohio. We are lodge number 45.

Charitable Causes We Assist

In addition to supporting our local law enforcement community, the Wadsworth FOP supports several area charitable causes and organizations financially, logistically, and through volunteering.

Some of the organizations that we have assisted in the past include:

  • Adopt-a-Highway Program
  • Annual 'Cops and Kids' (formerly "Shop With A Cop")
  • Special Olympics & the Special Olympics Torch Run
  • Various youth sports teams
  • Wadsworth Salvation Army
