About Us

In 1973 FOP Lodge 66 was created as a fraternal organization for the men and women of the Lake County Sheriff’s Office. Even through fellowship is a component of this organization we feel that our primary role is to help those in need. Over the years we have raised money and awareness for programs such as the Special Olympics Illinois and Shop with a Sheriff. Along with those programs we’ve also contributed to charity organizations such as the 100 Club of ChicagoEaster SealsthE WERTHy Foundation, and Toys for Tots.

Lodge 66 member meetings are held quarterly. For a list of meeting dates and other locations go to the Members Login.
