In line with Camille Gibson

about Fraternal Organizations in the Encyclopedia of Law Enforcement:

Law enforcement fraternal organizations are social groups consisting of sworn officers who may engage in legislative and work conditions advocacy for themselves and various forms of community service to benefit others. Thus, officers benefit from fraternal organizations by their membership. Often, specific fraternal organizations will require a secondary trait of commonality. For example, Police Officers for Christ is a fraternal organization where the membership has a Christian faith in common, the Gay Officers' Action League is a fraternal organization where the membership is likely to have a homosexual identity in common, and the Policewoman's Endowment Association is one where officers would have a female identity in common. Some fraternal organizations include retired officers and/or honorary non-law enforcement persons in their membership.
