Join the Fraternal Order of Police, Tri-County Lodge #3
More than 45 years ago, prominent law enforcement officers in Tri-County recognized the need for a law enforcement association that would be open to criminal justice professionals.
Created in 1976, the Fraternal Order of Police Tri-County Lodge #3 (SCFOP3) began “Serving the Law Officers of the Lowcountry.” Today, more than 900 officers, representing every rank in federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies, enjoy valuable services and benefits provided by SCFOP3 – the finest of all law enforcement organizations in South Carolina.
