Actually, as someone who works closely with the organization, I need to take exception to the negative review below. First of all, the numbers he quotes are completely wrong. Secondly, the organization (which has been in existence for 40 years) does a great deal of direct mail -- including educational materials regarding public safety, thousands of cards and gifts to our police families, magazines, family updates and, yes, mail solicitations. With direct mail being designated as "fundraising" it gives the impression that everything mailed out is a plea for money. Not so, not by a long shot. They are exploring new digital venues for fundraising and other communications but the bottom line is that many of their constituents still prefer to receive printed matter. They serve their constituents first. But they encourage inquiries about the services they provide and they especially encourage individuals to contact them if they know of a police family in need. That's what they do -- that's why they have been around for 40 years.
