This organization recently solicited by mail and telephone in my home town. I had received a notice from the Police Department about it. It had already called me and I determined it was a fundraising outfit, not the police department and hung up. However some residents were taken in by it, two that I know personally. The following is excerpted from our local paper, The Pilot, similar to a second notice I received from the police, but I have eliminated specific names."When a Southern Pines resident got a call from the Southern Pines Fire Chief soliciting money for the department she was eager to help. The caller on the other end of the phone was not the Chief, nor was he a member of the Southern Pines police or fire department. 'If he hadn't said he was the chief and used his name I would have questioned him more,' said the resident. 'I felt like I knew who I was talking to, but I didn't know.' According to Southern Pines police, an organization known as the 'Police Protective Fund' is currently soliciting donations in Moore County using a post office box address in Charlotte. This solicitation is occurring by both direct mailing and by telephone. The police are urging residents to exercise caution when making charitable donations. Upon receiving a monthly credit card statement, the resident observed that the Police Protective Fund was listed as the recipient of the donation. She called her credit card company and notified police. She said that when she called her credit card company she had the money refunded. The Southern Pines Police Fire/Rescue Department and the Southern Pines Police Department do not receive any monies from the Police Protective fund, according to a press release. The Southern Pines Police Department has asked the Attorney General's Office in North Carolina to review the practices and legitimacy of 'Police Protective Fund' so it could provide further guidance to those who are considering making a charitable contribution, according to the release."
I would rate this NO STARS, however I may have to give it one star in order to get this review submitted.

Received a call from this group. After asking a few questions, I politely asked to be taken off their call list. The caller (male) got belligerent and kept countering my request. It was a clear case of intimidation and refusal to acknowledge my request.
If this rating is not here in the next
couple of weeks I'll know that this site is set up to help the scammers and NOT the general public!
Please check them out on one of the legit sites like Charity Navigator to see how much goes back into their pockets!

My name is Fr. Scott and I did a few videos for Survivor Network. The format is highly professional and well done. I found the videos to be most helpful for people that have suffered a loss in their family. They were emotional as they should be but offered comfort most of all. I highly recommend them to anyone that has suffered a loss in the family.

Those people that have seen the videos and reported back to me say they helped them understand their suffering and helped them on their road to recovery.

I am a semi-retired senior citizen and live in the vicinity of one of the schools in my city that has the Junior Police Academy. It has been my pleasure to watch some of the outside activities that the students do with both their School Resource Officer and outside visitors from various law enforcement agencies.
It is very gratifying to see the way in which the students conduct themselves and the respect they show for their instructors.
All in all I believe the Junior Police Academy is a very worthwhile program.

The Junior Police Academy Program is a wonderful program bringing School Resource Officers and students together. I Have seen the difference JPA has made in the lives of young people all over this country. JPA teaches students what law enforcement is all about and how officers are they friends. It should be in every middle and high school in the country!!!

For many years I have volunteered my services to the Junior Police Academy. It is an organization that I firmly believe changes the lives of young people. They go into a classroom with the School Resource Officer and learn not only about law enforcement but they get to know their instructor as a person they can trust and is there to help them. I have seen students become school leaders and set good examples in their schools. I would recommend the Junior Police Officer to any parent or student.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the young people change their attitudes about police officers and become role models for their schools

encourage every middle school in the United States to offer this program to their students.
