The PPF had called my home several times in January and Febuary of this year requesting to speak with my wife. The first several times I informed them that she was not available. Finally after about three calls I asked why they were calling and they informed me of their annual awareness program. I informed that we were were not interested and to remove our phone number. The individual told me that he could not do that with out talking to my wife. I advised that I was the account holder on the telephone account and had legal athority to request my number be removed. He abroutly thanked me and hung up. About a week later they called again. This is a deliberate violation of federal regulation 16 C.F.R 310.4(b)(iii)(A) prohibits calling anybody who has previously asked not to be called.

Just got a call from this organization - As I was loading the organization into the charity navigator site, while the caller was talking, he asked if he could count on my support. I said that he could send me information and I would research the organization to see if it was something we would be interested in donating to. Click. That was it. Guess that says it all.

What does the Police Protective Fund do?

The Police Protective Fund encompasses a number of different programs that aid law-enforcement workers in various way. One of their most important programs is their "Line-of-Duty Death Benefit." Enrollment in this program is absolutely free to any
and all law-enforcement officers, and provides a $10,000 benefit to the beneficiaries of officers killed in the line of duty.

In 2006, Police Protective Fund raised $5,938,902 in donations yet awarded only $37,000 in death benefits. In 2007, Police Protective Fund raised $6,881,915 in donations yet awarded $50,000 in death benefits. Most of the money raised goes towards their fundraising expenses.

Many law agencies use telemarketing firms to solicit funds for such programs as a legal defense funds for police officers, or "Backstoppers" which is an organization that aids widows and children of officers slain or permanently injured in the line of duty.

When a person is contacted over the phone or at their door by an agency they should refuse to give money or information until they have made certain of legitimacy of the solicitor. Never give out credit card or bank account information or allow anyone to enter your home that you do not have previous knowledge of. When in doubt call your local police department for assistance.
