Oklahoma Disaster Relief Message from National FOP President Canterbury
Updated On: May 22, 2013

The Chairman of the National Trustees, Joe Perkins has been on scene in Moore OK and reports that we have not had any members injured or killed. That is the good news. The bad is 8 to 10 members have lost their homes. I am urging our members to go to our National Disaster Program and donate. This fund has provided over one million dollars to members during natural disasters. No one takes care of the members better than we do. Click here for link: Disaster Relief

Colorado FOP President Frank Gale has communicated with the Oklahoma FOP offering assistance if needed. For now they have plenty of members on hand involved in relief efforts. If they need anything, we will pass it along here and through email.


The FOP Foundation is here to help officers who have been displaced by a disaster. During a disaster, officers often need help with food, housing and other necessities. In the past, we have assisted with flooding disasters throughout the United States, the Tsunami in 2004, Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Sandy in 2012.  The Earthquake of Haiti, fires throughout the West,  and many more tragic disasters.

The National FOP Foundation provided not only needed food and supplies, but we were also able to provide humanitarian and emotional support for these officers. Every cent collected by our Foundation during this disaster was used to support and care for these officers. The National FOP Foundation gave nearly $1 million in response to Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath.

LEFRI - The Law Enforcement Families Readiness Initiative

During natural disasters, man-made disasters or other crisis events, law enforcement officers are generally required to remain on duty for extended periods of time. Such calls to duty often result in officers' long absences from home and infrequent communication with their families. During times of disaster, officers can reasonably be expected to be quite concerned about the safety of his or her family. When disaster strikes, it is too late to establish a plan of action especially when law enforcement families are victims themselves. Establishing a family disaster plan prior to an event will ease the struggle and suffering felt by everyone involved.

The Law Enforcement Families Readiness Initiative (LEFRI) was designed to develop guidance for law enforcement agencies to develop and implement a law enforcement family readiness plan in the event of disaster and other crisis-type situations. Funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance, U.S. Department of Justice and implemented by the National Fraternal Order of Police Foundation, the LEFRI project worked to develop educational and other support materials for agencies, officers, and families to use when preparing for disaster-type scenarios and extended absences from the home due to the officer's call to duty. The project developed a model policy that law enforcement agencies in rural, suburban, and urban areas can use to guide officer and family preparedness activities before a prolonged crisis event occurs.

Following the attacks of September 11, 2001, the federal government launched a nationwide campaign to improve the preparedness of all Americans. September was declared National Preparedness Month. Websites like were heavily promoted and numerous high ranking federal officials and other public leaders worked to raise awareness about the importance of being prepared.

Our research suggests a similar need for an information clearinghouse and greater emphasis on preparedness for law enforcement officers and their families. To this end, National FOP Foundation Disaster website, as well as links to regularly updated preparedness material has been incorporated to help law enforcement agencies, officers and their families recognize the importance of preparedness and provide them with the tools to implement their own plans.

Our officers leave their families every day to risk their lives to protect you.  Please donate and help honor the more than 330,000 heroes today!

In what has been an ongoing effort to seriously weaken or destroy the Denver Sheriffs Deputies FOP Lodge 27, the City of Denver manufactured an internal case and fired one the FOP’s top leaders and most outspoken advocates for union rights. Frank Gale is fighting this action and the FOP's attorneys are certain Frank will prevail.  It will be a long hard fight.  In response to requests from across the country a support fund has been established to accept donations to provide Frank financial aid through this difficult financial time.  Please give what you can.  Click on the “Donate” button below to link to our secure account. Thank you.
