Steve James for National Sergeant at Arms

At this past National Fraternal Order of Police board meeting in Dallas, TX, our National Trustee Steve James announced he would be running for National Sergeant at Arms. 

Steve has decades of devoted service to law enforcement, both at the Long Beach Police Department and as a local, statewide, and national labor leader in the Fraternal Order of Police.

The National FOP is more unified than it has been in over a decade which is a testament to our current National Board. Steve’s ability to find common ground through diverse viewpoints for the betterment of the membership is a perfect fit for our National Executive Board and will allow for continued success through collaboration.

Steve's experience and expertise makes him the right choice for National Sergeant at Arms.
