Welcome to the Jason Conklin Memorial Lodge 957 Website.
This site is dedicated to our brothers and sisters who made the ultimate sacrifice.
The central mission of our Lodge is to ensure that the fallen officers of the Orange County law enforcement community are never forgotten. To further this goal, our Lodge has erected and dedicated two memorial walls at the entrance of the County Courthouse that list the names of the 28 members of the Orange County law enforcement community that have died in the line of duty. We are also dedicated to honoring the families and loved ones of these fallen heroes for their sacrifice, dignity and courage. To honor and recognize these very special people, we hold the Orange County Law Enforcement Memorial Service every year on the first Friday in May to coincide with the start of National Police Week. Our other main objectives are to promote fraternal, social and charitable events among the law enforcement community, and foster good relations between all members of law enforcement. We also advocate on the behalf of our members using the legislative and political process.
We also intend:
to support and defend the Constitution of the United States
to inculcate loyalty and allegiance to the United States of America
to promote and foster the enforcement of law and order
to improve the individual and collective proficiency of our members in the performance of their duties
to encourage fraternal, educational, charitable and social activities amongst law enforcement officers
to advocate and strive for uniform application of the civil service merit system for appointment and promotion
to support the improvement of the standard of living and working conditions of the law enforcement profession through every legal and ethical means available
to create and maintain tradition of esprit de corps insuring fidelity to duty under all conditions and circumstances
to cultivate a spirit of fraternalism and mutual helpfulness among our members and the people we serve
to increase the efficiency of the law enforcement profession and thus more firmly to establish the confidence of the public in the service dedicated to the protection of life and property.
Letter From The President
American Legion Post 488
As we emerge from one of the toughest winters in several years, and hopefully the beginning of the end of the COVID 19 pandemic and a return to normalcy, I want to update you on some upcoming important events.
Attorney General Letitia James and Sen. Kevin Parker have sponsored a disastrous anti-police bill called the Police Accountability Act which if passed would be the most restrictive use of force law in the country. It goes without saying that this will also result in more police officers being injured and killed, as well as assure the continuation of skyrocketing violent crime destroying our communities.
Please see the below link from the Police Conference of New York and take the time to help fight this dangerous legislation. Failure to do so will have a drastic impact on you, your families and cops on the street.
Please click here and fill out the petition on the website.
Additionally, please share the link with your membership, family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, business owners, and anyone else in your community.
