Programs: CRISIS PROGRAMS The Police Protective Fund puts the experience and wisdom of public safety professionals and veteran caregivers within the reach of every department - offering assistance to their response to a line of duty incident. The death of a public safety officer places extraordinary demands on a department - many of which are well outside the core-proficiencies of most law enforcement professionals. We sponsor three programs that assists agencies in preparing for or responding to these exceptional circumstances: SURVIVOR NETWORK JOHN COOLEY SEMINARS THE POLICE CHAPLAIN PROJECT The combined reach of these programs extends support to law enforcement administrators, caregivers and to the greater law enforcement community, including officers and their families. Junior Police Academy Junior Police Academy motivates young people to be outstanding citizens through law enforcement education. Proceed with Caution PROCEED WITH CAUTION is an ongoing effort to heighten public awareness so motorists will take an important step in making the roadways a safer workplace for law enforcement officers.

When there stuff showes up IF they use a bussiness reply pre paid postage envelope for you to return your check in send them a note back to kiss off on there dime! At least it cost them a doller in postage and printing to call you. And when thay call back to check were your $$ is tell O ya what wasyour name (the person not the Company) them tell them you are recording them for the State attorney general.

I was a Maryland State Trooper for almost 30 years and while I've been solicited by this organization(have NOT donated) I have never heard of them ever sending a check to the families of any of our fallen troopers.

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!

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

Their rude treatment.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Close it!
