e are an F.O.P. Associate Lodge         
-- one of over 2000 nationally comprised of over 100,000 members who support the greater than 300,000 active F.O.P. members nationally.  We support them financially, spiritually, in any health-related issue and via any other means available.

A Brief History of the Fraternal Order of Police




The requests for 2018 dues will begin in July.  Mail to Dr. Ente at the Post Office address below as soon as possible.   Thanks!

urrently our membership consists of health professionals representing every specialty and sub specialty related to health care, both physical and emotional.   These members are called upon daily by members of the Police force of local, state and national levels to assist in whatever medical, health-related and social needs, with little regard to self remuneration from the police officers, their families, children or families of deceased officers.  All members pledge to support the Police community and their family members.

Charitable Donations:  

The Physician's Surgeons Lodge SA-03 ("FOP Police Surgeon's Lodge") is dedicated to the support of the NYS FOP and to assist those in need, especially those aligned with law enforcement.  Donations are made only to those organizations or groups whose needs are consistent with our mission.  To submit a request online or to download a Request Form, go here.

9/11 Health Bill:  

A retired NYPD LT has asked for assistance in supporting the permanent extension of the 9/11 Health Bill (HR 1786 and S 928). In addition to the 23 NYPD Officers that perished on 9/11, 85 have died since due to 9/11 related illnesses. Out of the 435 Congressional Districts across the entire United States there are sick First Responders residing in 429 of them. First Responders flocked to aid in the rescue and recovery efforts and now 33,000 are sick and many have died due to 9/11 related illnesses. Funding for the current program was set to expire at the end of October 2015. As of today we have 271 from the House and 68 from the Senate on board.

The Lodge has written a letter of support, but members are encouraged to contact their Congressman/ Congresswoman and both Senators and demand that they not only support the 9/11 Health Bill but to co-sponsor the bill in its current form. Follow the above links or call the main Capitol Switchboard (202) 224-3121 and they will connect you if you tell them where you live.

Member Benefits

We are always saddened by the loss of any of our members.  We have had two members whose death were considered accidental.  As you all know, one of our membership perks is an accidental death policy for up to $10,000 to any member in good standing who has shared their their Social Security number with us.  These member's wives have received a check for $10,000 - milestones for the Lodge and a great surprise to the families.

NEW: The NYSFOP has a new Dental and Vision plan provided through Ameritas. Benefits are now available to our members. For details please access the new State Web site at www.nysfop.org.

     We have mailed all Photo ID's, wallet ID's and stickers for 2017.  If you have not received your 2017 Photo ID with your membership material, it means that NYS does not have your photo in the system.  So e-mail a head shot with a light colored background (not red or black) to entedoc@aol.com.  If you have not yet received your material, contact Dr. Ente as soon as possible.
