The Fairfax Fraternal Order of Police (F.O.P.), Lodge 77, is proud to announce the founding of our new Political Action Committee (PAC). The Fairfax Police PAC board is comprised of F.O.P. Lodge 77 board members and members. The mission statement of the Fairfax Police PAC is to support political candidates who advocate for better pay and benefits for Fairfax County law enforcement officers.
Why did F.O.P., Lodge 77 start a political action committee?
During recent efforts to achieve compensation parity with our public safety counterparts, it was observed that public safety advocacy groups with an active PAC were more effective in achieving pay and benefits goals long term. Additionally, Virginia is a “Right to Work” state. Therefore, collective bargaining and binding arbitration are not tools available to labor organizations. A PAC is merely just another tool that will hopefully increase the voice of our membership.
