The FOP Trademark, FOP Cops and KidsTM, is available to all FOP lodges for use when providing charitable services to needy children, most commonly Christmas gifts and school supplies. This trademark was created as an alternative to the "Shop with a Cop" trademark which is NOT owned by the FOP. The FOP is offering our trademark to all FOP Lodges at no cost.
The FOP Kids and Cops program is designed to build relationships between your Local Lodge and the community. Officers taking underprivileged kids shopping for Christmas presents or school supplies shows those children that the police in their area are friends and are always there to help. Giving a child a present, when they wouldn't have received one, or the supplies they need to excel in school, can make a lasting impression.
To receive permission to use this trademark, please send a request via e-mail to National Secretary Patrick Yoes at email@example.com or by letter to the Grand Lodge. You will be required to provide examples of any marketing materials created using the trademark.
The FOP would like to collect FOP Cops and Kids success stories and pictures. Please send any information or materials to Angie Muncy at firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to the Grand Lodge.
