About Us

     The Federations of Police started out in 1934 as the Westchester County Police

Conference, a primarily social organization of local PBAs that met once a month to

socialize and to exchange information regarding salaries, working conditions,

benefits and criminal activity in Westchester County, New York.

     In 1976, the Westchester County Police Conference membership served as the

startup organizations of  Tri County Federation of Police, Inc. (TCF).  TCF was a

non-profit labor organization (now inactive) with membership of full-time municipal

police officers in the New York counties of Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess. 

    TCF provided to member PBAs a legal plan offering job-related services such as

contract negotiations, defense of disciplinary actions and applications for disability

pensions, as well as offering group welfare benefits such as life insurance, dental and

optical coverage, disability insurance.  There was also a personal legal service plan

offering individual members a discounted rate on personal, family and real estate matters. 

     PBAs outside the TCF area, as well as other police and peace officers, expressed

interest in the organization, but were unable to join due to a bylaw restricting membership.

In 1980, New York State Federation of Police, Inc. (NYSFOP) was chartered as a

non-profit labor organization with a membership field that included all full and part-time

law enforcement officers as so defined in the Criminal Procedure Law of the State of New York, as well as police and peace officers established by other Federal and State statutes. 

This permitted the inclusion of district attorney investigators, correction officers, constables, federal agents, park police, and so forth.  NYSFOP offers the same group and personal legal plan and welfare benefits, as TCF, to qualified active and retired employees

throughout the state.

     In 1981, United Federation of Police Officers, Inc. (UFPO) was chartered as a national

non-profit labor organization.  UFPO membership is open to active and retired public sector employees of the United States Government and/or any state or local government employed in any capacity to provide for the orderly administration of justice or to promote the public health, safety and welfare, as well as employees in the private sector who perform the same or similar work frequently performed by public sector employees.  UFPO offers the same

group and personal legal plan and welfare benefits, as NYSFOP.                         Return to Top
