Why Join FLEOA

Welcome to the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association (FLEOA®). FLEOA is the largest nonpartisan, nonprofit professional association, exclusively representing federal law enforcement officers. FLEOA represents more than 25,000 federal law enforcement officers from over 65 different agencies. FLEOA is a charter member of the DHS Federal Law Enforcement Advisory Board, holds two seats on the Congressional Badge of Bravery Federal Board, and serves on the Executive Board of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund and the National Law Enforcement Steering Committee.

 FLEOA, founded in 1977, is a volunteer organization. Born out of necessity by a group of concerned agents from Customs, IRS-CI, TIGTA, FBI and INS, FLEOA's primary tenet was, and still is, legal assistance and representation.

FLEOA is the legislative voice for the federal law enforcement community. FLEOA is often called upon to testify at congressional hearings, and represent the position of federal law enforcement. In order to protect federal law enforcement officers pay and benefits, FLEOA maintains a regular presence in Washington, DC. To date, FLEOA has played a pivotal role in the passing of important legislation that impacts federal law enforcement officers, i.e., Law Enforcement Availability Pay (LEAP), Good Samaritan Act, Badge of Bravery, FERS Sick Leave Credit, NSPS repeal, etc.
