The Fraternal Order of Police Auxiliary is an ancillary organization of law enforcement officers. The Auxiliary is the only national support organization of its kind. 

The Fraternal Order of Police Auxiliary was organized to unite families of members of the Fraternal Order of Police; to promote their welfare socially, morally and intellectually by aiding in supporting beneficial legislation, providing programs that inform and educate and to encourage them in all things pertaining to their good.

The Fraternal Order of Police Auxiliary began in 1920 in Pittsburgh. Pennsylvania. Kathryn M. Milton spearheaded the organization of the first Auxiliary. In 1941 Kathryn M. Milton became the first national president of the FOP Ladies Auxiliary. Since that tie the Auxiliary has grown to over 2,000 members in 140 subordinate Auxiliary representing 25 states.

In 1985 auxiliary membership eligibility that originally allowed only females as members was extended to ALL family members (18years of age or older) of any member of the Fraternal Order of Police.

The motto of the Fraternal Order of Police Auxiliary is "Never Let Them Walk Alone".
