My aunt was contacted by this "nonprofit". They came across like an old friend. They had almost 3 million in revenues for last reporting period. Administrative expenses were nearly $500k. Fundraising expenses were nearly 2 million. Looks like they dispersed about $425K. If you needed it and were helped...good for you. My main problem with organizations (read: scammers) like this one is they do not document meetings, nor do they offer audited financials. I would love to see the details of their fundraising expenses. Why do they have Ed Meese on board? Does he attend or has he ever attended a meeting? Can they prove it? I think I will give Ed a call..after all, we are old friends.

I am one of the Officers that was supported by the LELDF. I am enormously grateful that they are their to assist with all my needs. When an Officer is falsely or wrongly indicted, who can you turn to? The Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund, thats who. I can't tell you how the money is disemenated or distributed. I can only say that for my defense, I timely recieved everything that was asked for. Without your contributions innocent officers will suffer. I want to thank you for your past contributions and at the very least ask you to consider the source of this information you recieved on the LELDF.

I've been donating for a few years now and can't tell you how disappointed I am to find out how little of my donation actually made it to the police officers. I'm done with these guys.
