Brad began serving as President in June, 2014. President Lemon joined the Fraternal Order of Police in 1992 when he graduated the police academy as a Kansas City Missouri Police Officer. He joined the Executive Board in 2009 and has served as the 2nd Vice President, Treasurer, and the Executive Vice President. President Lemon has chaired the Labor Services Committee since 2009.
During his tenure on the Executive Board Lodge 99 received recognition for both the sworn members, below the rank of Captain, and most of the department’s non-sworn members. In 2010 the first collective bargaining contract in the department’s history was completed which provided protections for every member in the sworn bargaining unit. The Lodge purchased a 15,000 square building and now houses its offices, a five thousand square foot meeting and event space along with the Law Offices of McCauley and Roach.
In 2013, President Lemon and the Executive Board finalized negotiations regarding a law suit settlement against the Board of Police Commissioners and Kansas City over a health care issue. The subsequent settlement brought pay raises and pension contribution increases that will guarantee full funding of the pension fund. In that same year the work by the Executive Board successfully lobbied the state’s legislative bodies and returned its members their political rights, the first time in 74 years.
President Lemon has served on the city’s Health Care Committee, Pension Committee and Blue Ribbon Commission on the Local Control of the Police Department.
Brad has attended numerous State and National FOP conferences, training seminars and labor summits.
President Lemon has served in Metro, Center, East, and Shoal Creek Patrol Divisions, along with the Tactical Response Team. He has also served in several investigative elements, including Narcotics, Property Crimes and Violent Crimes. He was promoted to Sergeant after making the 1997 Sergeant’s list.
Brad and Shelly’s two families have blended into one and they have three children.
