A MEMBERSHIP BENEFIT
F.O.P. Lodge 86 is reviving the electronics club, formerly known as the radio club or pager club. The new and improved electronics club now encompasses more than just your radio and pager. With membership you are now covered for neglectful loss and/or damage, as determined by department administration, of your department issued radio, pager, laptop blackberry, aircard or tablet.
Who is Eligible
Officers must be active F.O.P. members to participate in the plan as of January 31. 2013. At that time, active members will pay increased dues of $.25 per pay pending bylaw change.
Retired officers must be F.O.P. retiree members to participate in the plan as of January 1. 2013. Retiree members must pay an annual $6 fee every year beginning January 31, 2013 and each consecutive year following. This category includes retirees who now are reserves.
Civilian members of the I.M.P.D. must be an associate member, in good standing. to participate as of January 1, 2013. There will be no additional fees assessed for associate members. This category includes all active reserve officers. This category does not include civilian employees who are former sworn employees (Retirees). They will be covered under Retired Officers.
Anyone who had previously paid into an existing fund (I .M .P.D. Radio, I.M.P.D. Pager or Marion County Radio) as of January 1, 2009 will be exempted from additional assessments for the calendar year of 2012. However, everyone must be an F.O.P. member (Active, retiree or associate) by January 31,2013 to continue to participate. Should you wish to verify that you are a past member of a club please call Holli or Pam at the F.O.P. at 637-1195
How The Plan Works
Any damage or loss of department issued electronic equipment, specifically the following:
- Verizon Aircard
via neglect, result ing in department administration making a determination that you must payout of pocket to have the item replaced, will be covered by this fund.
This plan is managed by YOUR F.O.P. The President of the lodge will appoint a member of the lodge to manage the club and that member will have authority to disperse funds should the need arise. All funds will be housed at the Professional Police Officers Credit Union 1502 E Washington St Indianapolis, IN 46201.
I would like to acknowledge the many hours and effort put forth by FOP member Jerry Piland in drafting this proposal, conducting exhaustive research and aSSisting in the implementation of this program. Jerry has been offered and accepted the responsibilities as the chairman of the FOP 86 electronics club.
