I donated to this organization for the first time this holiday season, after speaking with the professionals who run it and with those who benefit from its services. The work it does -- from maintaining the American Police Hall of Fame & Museum (with its beautiful Memorial area) to supporting the families of officers disabled in the line of duty and providing K9 units to over 100 agencies nationwide -- is consistent and essential. From the Christmas and Birthday gifts to the children of disabled officers, to college scholarships, to educational museum displays and activities geared toward improving relationships between civilians and law enforcement, to supporting law enforcement leadership through publications and surveys, and so much more, I can see my dollars at work and I am eager to see how the programs expand in the coming year.

As the wife of A State Trooper, that was shot in the line of duty and left catastrophically injured, I can say first hand that this organization has been there for me and our (2) children. Every year they remembered our daughter's birthday and Christmas with a present in the mail. The $250.00 summer camp scholarship allowed them to go to cheer camp that due to my husband's reduced income might not have been possible. When they were college bound a $500.00 check for (4) years assisted in buying books. I receive yearly a Mother's Day gift. I am in touch with this organization routinely as they have not forgotten us. As time passes, the people from the department have moved on and calls are non existent. Some may think officers are well taken care of after being injured, but, one truly doesn't know the struggles financially, emotionally and physically that haunts us daily. No one has ever taken into account a reduced salary does not increase with the cost of living increase and raising children. Families have suffered enough and want to try to live a life of normalcy. This organization is not just State specific, but Nationally. These gestures of kindness came in a time of need financially and emotionally. I am truly grateful!!!

As a law enforcement wife, I am grateful that I have not needed NACOP's services, but I know people who have and they've been a Godsend. Keep up the good work!

Your front cover of the Fall 2017 edition/magazine was a poor choice. Yes we value SWAT/ESU teams and are thankful they are available, BUT this is not the face of Police work nor is it the face I as a Chief of Police would advertise or promote on the cover of a public magazine, nor do I appreciate it when you do.

I have personally visited the Hall of Fame and Museum where the National Association of Chiefs of Police is housed. I was very moved by the Memorial and the names of fallen officers etched in marble. As a retired officer myself, I know how much this organization does for police and police families. In tandem with the AFP&CC (also located at the hall of fame), they see to it that the children, families and parents of fallen or disabled officers are never forgotten, even years after a line-of-duty death or injury. Thank goodness for good organizations and dedicated people like NACOP and the Hall of Fame staff.

Excellent organization that supports disabled officers and their families, in addition to providing education and information to law enforcement leadership nationwide. Their K-9 placement program has placed canine units in over 90 law enforcement agencies across 31 states. Through the Disabled Police Officers Fund, NACOP provides birthday and holiday gifts to the children of disabled officers as well as funds for summer camp, college scholarships, emergency medical services and more. I encourage those who are thinking about donating to contact the agency and find out more about what they do and how they do it. A tour of their Museum and operational facility (which houses TWO different organizations -- NACOP and the American Federation of Police and Concerned Citizens) is really impressive. From that one location, they serve LEOs and their families nationwide.
