Founded in 1976, the Deputy Sheriffs Association was organized for the purposes of disseminating factual data in an attempt to promote the professionalism of law enforcement services; stimulating mutual cooperation between law enforcement agencies, and striving for the establishment and maintenance of equitable wages, hours, working conditions and retirement for all Deputy Sheriffs in Prince George’s County, MD. The organization also negotiated for, and entered into, collective bargaining agreements for wages, hours, terms and conditions of employment.
On November 23, 1993, the Deputy Sheriffs Association affiliated with the Grand Lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP), the nation’s largest law enforcement labor organization. Our Lodge designation number is 112.
Today, the Fraternal Order of Police, Lodge 112, serves over 300 sworn and retired Deputy Sheriffs of the Office of the Sheriff for Prince George’s County, MD; providing legal services, advancing career development, securing economic improvements, and ensuring that our members are represented in the most professional and impartial manner.
