Mallory is a highly respected/elected union representative for the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #5 (8 years), one of the oldest law enforcement unions in the country. While representing all Philadelphia Sheriff’s Office law enforcement employees, where he mediated grievances, inclusive of discipline and salary disputes, and was the first Assistant to the Chief Deputy of Operations of the largest division of the PSO.
