President's Message

Welcome to the Clearwater Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 10 Robert L. Pitmann Memorial Lodge web site. This web site is dedicated to those members of the Clearwater Lodge who have gone before us holding the thin blue line in our profession. Many have retired and moved on, but others were taken away from us by the brutality and the high cost of wearing a shield. The Police Officer above all others is required to practice the greatest act of religious training, which is sacrifice. We must always take a moment to honor the sacrifice that others have made protecting our freedom and the citizens of the City of Clearwater from criminal enterprise.

The executive board of Lodge 10 is made up of Police Officers who have walked the beat protecting the streets. They understand the unique nature of law enforcement and the challenges that it may bring to its membership. There is a strong tradition of representation and esprit de corps that insures fidelity to duty and the unbreakable bond of our brothers and sisters to being a Police Officer. We walk with the burden and the humility that we are mere ambassadors to the needs of the membership which we represent. It is in the strength and courage of our membership that we find courage when courage seems to fail, to regain faith when there seems to be little cause for faith, to create hope when it appears that it has gone astray. We are the executive board for Lodge 10, your ambassadors, your voice, your leadership.

The Clearwater Fraternal Order of Police is the exclusive Lodge for the Police Officers who serve the City of Clearwater. It was founded in 1957 and continues to strive for excellence in the fields of fraternalism, labor, and dedication to those who serve in the police profession. Please use the web site as a tool and if there are any questions please feel free to contact me or any other member of the executive board.
