We are committed to improving the working conditions of law enforcement officers and the safety of those we serve through education, legislation, information, community involvement, and employee representation.

Massachusetts FOP Members,
After careful consideration, the Massachusetts Fraternal Order of Police are proud to announce their support for a "NO" vote on question 3, repeal of the casino law. The $400 million in revenue generated by the resort casino law will increase local aid, enhance public safety and help improve municipal police services. This is money that is currently being spent in other states. After conversations with public safety officials in other jurisdictions that have gaming facilities, we know that casinos have no major impact on crime. The Massachusetts expanded gaming law is recognized nationally for its comprehensiveness, oversight and compliance measures. We urge each of our members to vote "NO" on question 3 and to encourage their family and friends to do the same.
The Massachusetts FOP Executive Board
The Massachusetts Fraternal Order of Police is pleased to announce the appointment of Boston Detective Mike Kane to the position of State Treasurer. Mike has been very involved with the state lodge for the past few years contributing and assisting in the many activities of the order. His experience and enthusiasm is a welcome addition to the executive board.
The Executive Board would also like to congratulate Jim Fowlie (Ret. Melrose P.D.). Jim was unanimously re-elected to the position of Chairman of Trustees. This Re-Election was made by the lodge trustees in attendance at the October meeting. Jim has served in that position for the past year and a half. He has done a great job and been a great asset to this organization.
With the addition of Mike and the re-election Jimmy, we look forward to the continued growth and success of the F.O.P. in Massachusetts.
