We have heard that the North Pole is very busy. Santa and his elves are trying to get all of the toys made, Mrs. Claus is baking lots of goodies and Santa is stressed out about his mailing list.
The Henrico Fraternal Order of Police Auxiliary has offered to help Santa this year with his mailing list. For $4.00 per child, the Henrico FOP Auxiliary can send a personalized letter to your child from Santa Claus.
The deadline to order your child’s letter is December 4, 2016. If you want the letter postmarked “NORTH POLE”, the information sheet MUST be received by this date. The letters will be mailed out by the week of December 15, 2016. If interested, please fill out this information sheet
and mail it (along with a check or cash) to:
2440 Battery Gregg Place
Henrico, VA 23231
Please make checks payable to Henrico #4 FOP Auxiliary.
We are really excited about helping Santa this year and look forward to sending a letter to your child. Please feel free to make copies of the form and pass it along to your family, friends and co-workers.

New Kent Sheriff's Office 1:43 scale Dodge Chargers
The shipment of New Kent Sheriff's Office 1:43 scale Dodge Chargers has arrived and are available for $25 each.
Cash or Check payable to "HLCF" (Henrico Lodge Charitable Foundation).
Mark Domnick has taken a supply to distribute as needed for the NKSO folks, but we can coordinate delivery or a central meeting point to make a sale happen…
Please help support the Lodge's Charitable Foundation, which supports many different events and organizations. You aren't just buying a really cool replica car, you're supporting the Lodge and helping us support others at the same time!
There are some remaining Henrico Police replicas, for the same price of $25 ea. These are truly running low and once they are gone, they're gone… The company has decided to END the custom replica part of their business…so this is it!

The following message is from the National President, Chuck Canterbury, regarding a data breach of the National FOP website:
Brothers and Sisters,
We have learned that our data system has been hacked by an unknown individual or group. It appears to have originated outside of the United States. The data breach is a complete breach of our data including names and addresses of members as well as date of births and phone numbers. We do not collect Social Security information so that was obviously not available to the hackers.
We recommend that all members head the following advice:
FOP members should immediately stop using their FOP password and change the password on any business/personal accounts in which that password is reused.
FOP members should monitor their credit reports, financial, and tax statements for any unusual activity.
FOP members should take steps to secure/remove information about themselves and their family online, which could be used to draw connections with the compromised data to more effectively target victims with malicious activity.
The Executive Board has meet and we have authorized our Information Technology team and outside consultants to take whatever steps are needed to get the system back up and secure.
The American Legion Post 244 in Glen Allen is opening their doors for our monthly meetings.
Our first meeting at this location will be Thursday, June 4, 2015.
The address is:
2522 Indale Road
Glen Allen, VA 23060

Reasons to be a member of the FOP:
Most important - Representation - Local, State, and National!
More importantly - fellowship with brothers and sisters of Law Enforcement.
Other benefits include:
LDP (Legal Defense Plan) - Having the LDP not only protects you but your family- don't put your personal financial situation in danger by not having this coverage. NOTE: Nationwide the per hour rate for an attorney is $325.00 whereas the annual cost for the FOP-LDP is $215.00 (testimonials available if you do not believe this coverage is an important addition to your Insurance portfolio). Having legal counsel during any investigation (administrative, criminal, or civil) will insure the protection of your due process rights. Waiting to obtain the LDP until after being notified that you are under investigation is like trying to obtain auto insurance after you have wrecked your car. Don't delay get it today!
Expert Financial Services through member partners:
Henrico FOP Associate Member Thom Kirby - Morgan Stanley. Thom has a vast array of experience in personal finance and is available for advice. He services our Foundation Accounts and regularly attends the monthly meetings.
Henrico FOP Associate Members Howard DiSavino and Dean Hardy - Mass Mutual Financial Group. Howard and Dean also provide financial advice and offer many levels of insurance opportunities.
