FOP Lodge 93 and FOP District 7 Endorse Sheriff Jerry L. Demings

On March 18, 2016, FOP District 7 held a Political Screener Meeting for candidates.  FOP District 7 ultimately endorsed Sheriff Jerry L. Demings in the race for re-election as Orange County Sheriff.  FOP Lodge 93 also endorsed Sheriff Demings in his quest for a third term. 

We wish Sheriff Jerry L. Demings success in his re-elections campaign and want to continue to work with him to resolve the wage, benefits, and other issues for all Court Security Officers, Deputies, Corporals, and Sergeants. 

SCOTT PINE BILL - Florida Retirement Law Changed for Line of Duty Deaths


The Scott Pine Bill has been signed by Governor Scott and has become a law.  There was a Scott Pine Bill signing ceremony at the Orange County Sheriff's Office on April 25, 2016.  Mrs. Bridget Pine was present with her children at the signing ceremony.  

We recognize the efforts of the Senate and House members, the Orange County Sheriffs Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #93 and our local team to include Retired Chief Judge Belvin Perry, who participated and fought for this legislation.

SB 7012 was prompted after the tragic death of Orange County Deputy Scott Pine in 2014. Following Deputy Pine’s death, it was discovered that his family would receive only a one-time payout due to his election of the FRS Investment Plan instead of the ongoing survivor benefits available to members of the FRS Pension Plan.

“This legislation honors the life of Deputy Pine and all of the fallen officers who have opted for the FRS Investment Plan,” said Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings. “Thanks to the actions of Representative Plasencia, as well as members of the Florida Legislature, the families of those killed in the line of duty can have peace of mind in knowing they will be taken care of if tragedy ever strikes.”

SB 7012 primarily makes two changes to FRS. First, the bill increases the monthly survivor benefits available to the spouses and children of FRS pension plan members in the Special Risk Class when killed in the line of duty from 50 percent of the member’s monthly salary at the time of death to 100 percent of the member’s monthly salary at the time of death. 
Second, the bill permits the surviving spouse or children of a Special Risk Class member killed in the line of duty the option to accept the funds from their FRS Investment Plan or elect to transfer into the FRS Pension Plan. 

Providing a surviving family the flexibility to opt into the Pension Plan will provide the spouse or children of the fallen officer the opportunity to be financially protected.
The legislation was a top priority of the Florida Sheriffs Association this session and was also supported by the Florida Police Benevolent Association and Deputy Pine’s wife, Bridget Pine.

FOP 93 and Sheriff Agree on Changes to FTO Program

FOP Lodge 93 and Sheriff Jerry L. Demings entered into a Memorandum of Understanding that improves the agency's Field Training Program. In short, the MOU establishes:
* Resume review for all FTO Applicants
* A Resume Review Committee to select applicants
* $3.00 increase in hourly pay for every hour spent training personnel
* FTO Supervisors receive $57.70 bi-weekly pay
* FTO's receive either $34.62 (0-2 years) or $53.08 (2 or more years or 1,000 hours of training)
* Establishes FTO Team requirements for training

We are happy to work with the Sheriff and his staff to bring about these important changes to the FTO/FTEP Program. This is an example of collaboration and cooperation to solve agency and Deputy issues.

FOP Lodge #93 - Working For You

The Fraternal Order of Police, Lodge #93, has been working both formally and informally with the Orange County Sheriff's Office labor relations team to resolve issues for our members.  Currently, we are enjoying the best working relationship with the Sheriff's team and work diligently to quickly resolve issues that are raised. Our Staff Representative, Jay Smith, can usually resolve most issues with a simple e-mail or phone call to the Labor Relations Manager. This is a huge benefit to our members.  

Should you have any issues that need to be addressed, please contact one of the Executive Board Members, Staff Representative Jay Smith, or the Labor Committee Members for assistance.  2016 promises to be an exciting year for FOP Lodge #93.  We are member driven and continue to work for our members' best interests.
