Once you complete the application, please return it to the FOP along with a copy of your drivers license and your dues ($50.00) and administrative background investigation fee ($15.00). Upon acceptance, you will receive a membership card and FOP window stickers. Upon annual renewal of your membership, you will receive a new membership card and updated window stickers. Renewal notices will be sent out in November. Dues for Associate Membership renewals are payable no later than January 31st of each year. Your 2016 FOP Lodge 89 Associate Membership dues are only $50.00. Please send your check payable to FOP Lodge 89 in the amount of $50.00 to FOP Lodge 89, PO Box 510, Lothian, MD 20711.
With your continued support, we will be able to continue offering tremendous services to the members of the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 89 (FOP). I wish to express my gratitude for the support and concerns you have shown towards our professional Prince George's County Police Officers. Your involvement and participation allows us to expand and strengthen our efforts to support our members, as well as the community. We are able to provide training seminars, support group and social club meetings, as well as many family events and functions.
Just a reminder, if you allow your Associate membership to lapse, we no longer allow Associates to pay their delinquent dues to be re-instated. The new policy states that if you allow your dues to lapse you will have to rejoin as a new Associate member. Once your name is removed from our membership roster, you will be required to resubmit a membership application and will be subject to an additional $15 administrative fee for an updated background check.
A membership card is needed to obtain access to the facilities at FOP Lodge 89 after normal business hours. Security to the building after business hours will be through key cards only. Only active and retired FOP Lodge 89 members and PAID Associate Members of FOP Lodge 89 will have the opportunity to obtain key cards.
- FOP Facilities - Associate members are eligible and welcome to use the Lodge facilities. Rental of the Banquet Hall and Field/Pavilion are available to members for family functions such as parties, receptions and reunions, etc. A discount is given to our members for immediate family functions only.

- FPA License Tag Program - FPA series Tags are offered to our Current FOP 89 Associate members only. FOP 89 Associate Members are eligible to apply for Maryland FPA series tags after one full year of Associate Membership has been completed and the second year membership is paid. The FPA tags identify the Associate members as a law enforcement supporter. Associate members interested in purchasing FOP tags for their vehicles must send in a copy of their current FOP 89 Associate Membership Card, a copy of the Maryland registration with the Associate members name on it as the owner or co-owner, and a check for $15.00 per vehicle made out to FOP 89. Our goal is to have the application package returned to applicant Associate member within two weeks of the chairperson receiving member information. Note: Members must provide a current and accurate address; FOP 89 is not responsible for non-delivery and/or replacement cost of application due to submission of incorrect address. You will then sign the application provided by the chairperson, and follow instructions provided. Glen Burnie is the only MVA authorized to issue FOPA Tags. Only Associate members are eligible to display FPA tags on their vehicles; spouses, children and relatives are not eligible unless the FOP 89 Associate members name is on the registration. FOP 89 does not maintain the applications at the Lodge.
