The City of Fort Lauderdale Police & Firefighters’ Retirement System exists to efficiently provide the highest quality of administrative services, within the applicable laws, professional and ethical standards, so that each member has the opportunity for a successful retirement.

General administration and responsibility for the operation of your pension plan are placed with a Board of Trustees. The Board keeps membership records, directs the investments of the plan trust fund, and employs consultants and other professionals as necessary. The Pension Board consists of 7 trustees, each serving for a period of 2 years. Four are members of the Plan elected by the active members, two are appointed by the Mayor with the approval of the City Commission and one is recommneded by the members of the Board and approved by the City Commission. The City Finance Director is a nonvoting, ex-officio member of the Board.

Fort Lauderdale currently has approximately 798 active police officers and firefighters. These public safety officers provide services to nearly 200,000 citizens and over 10 million visitors annually; respond to over 260,000 emergency and non-emergency calls per year, and patrol 497 miles of city streets, 7 miles of beach frontage, and 25 miles of intracoastal waterways. They are the first responders to all emergencies in the city, including hurricanes. The Fort Lauderdale Police and Firefighters’ Retirement System was established by City Ordinance and became effective January 3, 1973.
