Associate Memberships  -  Download Membership Form

The Hobart Fraternal Order of Police is proud to sponsor an Associate member program. You will be working hand and hand with members of the Hobart Police Department in support of our community.

The Hobart F.O.P. is a non-profit organization of local police officers dedicated to making charitable contributions to various community activities. Your yearly dues of $25, which will be due by the first of each year, will go towards sponsoring teams from the youth sports leagues, which include baseball, football, soccer, softball etc… The lodge has also sponsored school-oriented events such as D.A.R.E. band programs, theater, and other cultural experiences. In addition, we have an annual Shop-with-a-Cop for disadvantaged youths at back to school time and a food basket drive at Thanksgiving time for needy families in our community.

All of these activities and many more exceed the annual dues of our members; so your membership into the Hobart Fraternal Order of Police as an Associate member would be greatly appreciated.

For the Associate members there will be a monthly meeting at the beginning of each month. You also will be invited to attend FOP functions such as, golf outing’s, Christmas party’s, Policemen’s ball and FOP smokers.

If you are interested in becoming an Associate member, please fill out the attached petition and return it as soon as possible.
