CSLEA FOP Lodge #77 Attends NFOP 62nd Biennial Conference "You all have so much to be proud of and rightfully so. You are our eyes and our ears in the fight against terror. You protect the most vulnerable among us." - U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch

CSLEA-FOP_Star_Glowing-Logo_FINAL_246_274_c1PITTSBURGH - The National Fraternal Order of Police officially opened its 62nd Biennial Conference in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania August 10, 2015.

This year's conference coincides with the centennial celebration marking the beginning of the Fraternal Order of Police in 1915.

IMG_0711"This is a beyond strong organization that represents our members on a local, state and federal level," said CSLEA FOP Lodge #77 President Alan Barcelona. "To stand tall with thousands of law enforcement officers in one room is humbling, recognizing that each and every one of them would lay down their lives for the safety of others."

IMG_0713United States Attorney General Loretta Lynch also recognized the bravery of the brothers and sisters in law enforcement who attended the conference's opening ceremony. 

Lynch told officers that her department is committed to seeing that peace officers can perform their  jobs as effectively and safely as possible.

"For holding our safety in the palms of your hands, thank you for being the peace makers," said Lynch. 

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf also expressed his gratitude to law enforcement officers.   "You have volunteered to put your lives on the line for us," said Wolf. He added,  as beneficiaries of a safe society, citizens should recognize the efforts of peace officers. 

IMG_0725After opening comments, NFOP remembered those officers, state by state, who have died in the line of duty. 

"From cradle to grave, we will be here for you," said FOP President Chuck Canterbury. 

The conference runs through Thursday, August 13th.
