Baltimore County FOP

A History of Outstanding Accomplishments

The Baltimore County Fraternal Order of Police has made immense progress for police officers in its history. For example, FOP Lodge 4 earned collective bargaining in 1977. In 2002, a campaign to include binding arbitration as a dispute resolution was initiated. The campaign succeeded. The arbitration bill became law in 2003. In 2022, Lodge 4 championed an initiative to protect basic Due Process rights for police officers. This, too, was successful. FOP Lodge 4 is proud of its rich history of accomplishments. It will continue to be on the front line to protect the men and women of the Baltimore County Police Department.
