We believe that during the trying times when Officers are in a greater danger than ever before, we have to support the families of their fallen and not forgotten brothers and sisters. All those who reach our page want to make a difference. This page allows those who can, to donate to a scholarship fund. We also know that the Community, as a whole, appreciates the opportunity to assist the families who will grieve for years to come. We present that opportunity. We offer a way for everyone who can to participate in helping those who have been left behind, without their law enforcement parent, to send them off to college.
