Its a fraternal organization of police officers. They can also be collective bargaining representatives. The F.O.P. has no Law Enforcement Authority and is not a government agency.

So do regular law enforcement officers look down on them like they look down on security guards?

Why would cops look down on a FRATERNITY OF POLICE?? Think and read before you ask. Both of us already gave you the answer as to what the FOP is. Think about it! Would a fire fighter look down on an IAFF member? Same logic here.

Its a labor council for police..... Consist of reps and lawyers and other people....

So how do you get security guard out of it.... Ever drive and see the emblem on cars??? Of course in ohio it is a crime to use it if your not a member so don't get any ideas.

Of course it is.

Does Ohio still have the death penalty for speeding?

Just how old is the child that asked this question and do they ride the short bus ?
But perhaps I had better not.

Try www.fop.org and they can answer any questions you may have.

Plates on one (car has to be in Officer or Retiree's name)
Emblem of spouses.

I don't have a sticker or a medallion, or anything that identifies my POV as being owned by a police officer.

Having FOP stuff on your car without authorization is illegal in IL as well.
