On a recent trip to New York for a 10 year anniversary meeting, several Philadelphia Cops decided to open a Philadelphia Chapter. The Philadelphia Bottles and Badges group meets every Wednesday at your FOP for one hour. There are many other members that will be there to assist you. The first meeting was on May 13, 2009. There were several members in attendance and it was a great success.
