    The foundation’s survivor fund provides assistance for the immediate family members (widows, widowers and dependent children) of police officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty, through fund raising events and scholarship programs.

  • Community

    We are committed to helping our most impoverished communities where crime might be more prevalent by supporting educational programs for the youth, along with events that will involve local law enforcement officers.
