Welcome to our Website


Macon-Jackson Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #81 was Chartered in 2002 with 29 members.  Since inception, we have grown to 160 plus members.  Lodge #81 has become very involved in supporting both local Law Enforcement officers and the communities we serve.  Our budget depends primarily on paid membership dues from active or retired Law Enforcement Officers. 

 In order to fund our community and charity programs we must raise funds from our community and business.  We appreciate your support in the past and pray for your support in the future. 

Although our main objective is to insure that our local agencies and officers obtain the needed equipment and a voice with the government agency that they work for, we are also there to support the family when a love one has fallen in the line of duty. 

We do this in various ways, our Annual Raffle in the late summer, the Dunk Tank at the Annual Fair and our Business Associate Campaign.  The Macon/Jackson County Lodge #81 members run all these projects.  There are many scams or fraudulent telemarketers out there, so if you question the validity of the call please call or E-Mail one of the Lodge Officers.  The Macon/Jackson County Lodge #81 does NOT make telephone solicitations.  The callers should never imply that they are police/deputies officers or employees of the Police or Sheriffs Office.  We will take action on fraudulent calls immediately.  Misrepresentation of the Fraternal Order of Police or the Macon/Jackson County Lodge #81 will not be tolerated.  Impersonating a Police Officer or Deputy is a Crime. 

We may ask for assistance by Mail.  If this is done you will receive an official letter directly from the Lodge.  A professional company will not do it and 100% of the proceeds will stay in Macon/Jackson Counties and go to the Lodge activities.  Some of the programs we are also funding are Law Enforcement Scholarship Program and the Franklin High School Scholarship Program. 

 Donations can also be mailed directly to us at:
