following message is from the National President, Chuck
Canterbury, regarding a data breach of the National FOP
have learned that our data system has been hacked by an
unknown individual or group. It appears to have originated
outside of the United States. The data breach is a
complete breach of our data including names and addresses
of members as well as date of births and phone numbers. We
do not collect Social Security information
so that was obviously not available to the hackers.
recommend that all members head the following advice:
members should immediately stop using their FOP password
and change the password on any business/personal accounts
in which that password is reused.
members should monitor their credit reports, financial,
and tax statements for any unusual activity.
members should take steps to secure/remove information
about themselves and their family online, which could be
used to draw connections with the compromised data to more
effectively target victims with malicious activity.
Executive Board has meet and we have authorized our
Information Technology team and outside consultants to
take whatever steps are needed to get the system back up

Reasons to be
a member of the FOP:
important - Representation - Local, State, and
importantly - fellowship with brothers and sisters
of Law Enforcement.
(Legal Defense Plan) - Having the LDP not only
protects you but your family- don't put your
personal financial situation in danger by not having
this coverage. NOTE: Nationwide the per
hour rate for an attorney is $325.00 whereas
the annual cost for the FOP-LDP is $215.00
(testimonials available if you do not believe
this coverage is an important addition to your
Insurance portfolio). Having legal counsel
during any investigation (administrative,
criminal, or civil) will insure the
protection of your due process rights. Waiting
to obtain the LDP until after being notified that
you are under investigation is like trying to
obtain auto insurance after you have wrecked your
car. Don't delay get it today!
